* A lot of volatility this week. The final Buffy volume moves up into the top 5 with its imminent release, while Paying for It, Thor by Walt Simonson, and Fables suffer significant drops.
* A new Penny Arcade collection debuts in the top ten. Other debuts are the first Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse volume, a new Green Lantern Corps collection, the first volume of The Mighty, and five manga volumes, led by Naruto.
* This is the best week in a while for manga on the list with those five debuts; however, none of the manga that was in the top 50 last week remains this week.
* The new Dork Diaries finally comes out next week, and currently sits at #2; can it overtake the Wimpy Kid next week? Tune in next Friday to find out...
