* This week's big story is the total domination of the bestseller list by The Walking Dead. While not quite as impressive as it was earlier in the week, it still holds the top ten slots, twenty-two of the top 25, and more than half of the top fifty. Every extant print collection of The Walking Dead is in the top thirty.
* The WD Compendium, #1 this week on the comics chart, is an impressive #8 on the overall chart. The others in the top ten rate thusly overall: #20, #37, #54, #56, #61, #75, #82, #94, #96. (So yeah, if you do a little math, you'll see that The Walking Dead is taking up 10% of the overall top 100 on Amazon.)
* Last week I stated that there were only twenty-four WD collections extant. Turns out I was wrong, as it's also available on the Kindle, and two of those Kindle editions debut on the chart this week as well.
* The top debut this week is Spider-Man: Ends of the Earth, whose 65% off pre-publication price appears to be a bargain that many fans are finding attractive.
* The latest trend in Kindle comics appears to be 99¢ comics strip collections from Andrews McMeel. Collections of Ziggy & Close to Home join If You Loved Me You'd Think This Was Cute on the chart this week. There are full-size collections, not cheap samplers, and 99¢ appears to be a magic price point.
* The other debut this week is Dean Koontz's House of Odd. The previous Odd book did quite well, so keep an eye on this one.
* The only non-WD item on the list to show positive movement week-to-week was Maus.
