Items with asterisks (*) are pre-order items.

N = New listing appearing on list for first time
R = Item returning to the list after having been off for 1 or more weeks


Commentary:

* Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour, which hits stores next Tuesday, stays entrenched at #1 this week, and climbs to #36 on the overall books chart.

* Blackest Night remains strong, with the released hardcovers filling in at #2-4 on the chart, and four more pre-order hardcovers falling in further down the list.

* Interest in Harvey Pekar is sparked by his passing, with three American Splendor collections pushing up on to the chart.

* The only non-Pekar debut this week is the latest Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl Adventure down near the bottom. It's also the only manga to chart this week.

Incredible. It's over 20 years after they all debuted and Maus, Watchmen, V for Vendetta, and Sandman are all STILL THERE.
