N = New listing appearing on list for first time
R = Item returning to the list after having been off for 1 or more weeks
* After ceding the top to Scott Pilgrim for a week, the new Wimpy Kid volume is back on top. Wimpy Kid is #19 on the overall chart; the SP volumes are at #29, 32, 34 & 39. Persepolis, the next on the C&GN list, is at #290 on the overall list.
* The rankings for American Born Chinese are all over the place, as there are so many different editions available.
* Highest debut this week is the pre-order for the latest Garfield collection. Wait, there have been 50 Garfield collections? That's a lot of lasagna!
* The other debut this week is Larry Gonick's Cartoon Guide to the Environment. It came out back in 1996, and Amazon helpfully tells me that I previously purchased it back in 2001. Anyone have any idea as to why it's popping up onto the chart now?
* Locke & Key: Crown of Shadows gets a large bump up the chart, no doubt due to the news that the property has been optioned for a tv series with Steven Spielberg attached as a producer.
* And for the curious: The last item on this list, No Future For You, ranks at #6,684 on the overall Amazon books list.
