- Once again we have a new book atop the Amazon chart: the first New 52 Batman hardcover by Scott Snyder & Greg Capullo. It can probably thank the combination of interest in the upcoming Dark Knight movie and interest in DC's New 52 initiative for its success.
- In the #2 slot is a surprise debut: a slipcase collection of all ten Sandman trade paperbacks (scheduled for release in November). At a SRP of $199, Amazon's discount makes for a substantial savings.
- DC have all of the debuts this week; in addition to Sandman, there's the second Batman: Knightfall collection, and the first New 52 volumes of Green Lantern and Catwoman.
- Last week's #1, The Infinity Gauntlet, slips a bit to #7 this week, and it's the only Marvel book on the chart this week (The Marvel Encyclopedia is published by DK). At least Marvel got some boost in sales from the Avengers movie.
- Bat Watch: There are seven Batman collections on the chart this week, up one from last week. Frankly I'd have thought that the Batman Incorporated volume would be doing better, as Morrison tends to do pretty well on Amazon and Batman is getting hot with the upcoming movie.
- Dead Watch: There are ten Walking Dead collections on the chart this week, down two from last week. And it's a different mix as well, with five moving off the chart and three others moving back on.
