- A huge surge by Avatar: The Last Airbender comics gives us a new number 1 on the chart as the three volumes of The Last Promise take up three slots in the top ten, including the top debut, part 3 (which doesn't come out until October).
- Also debuting this week are Kick-Ass 2, the Kindle edition of the latest Big Nate strip collection, and the color hardcover of the first Scott Pilgrim volume.
- Just releasing the title of the next Wimpy Kid book, which doesn't come out until November, gives it a surge into the second slot on the list. Unless something very unusual happens, look for this book to dominate the chart at the end of the year...
- Earlier in the week, before the Avatar surge, Jeffrey Brown's Darth Vader and Son was momentarily in the #1 slot.
- Dead Watch: There are twelve Walking Dead collections on the chart this week, which is up two from last week.
- Bat Watch: There are seven Batman books on the chart this week, same as last (though Morrison's Arkham Asylum takes the place of Morrison's Batman, Inc.).
