- This week's new number one is Batman: Earth One, as the new OGN leaps over the top ten to land on the top of the Amazon comics chart. Which leads up right into...
- Bat Watch: Nine Batman titles on the chart this week. Which is actually down one from last week, but of those that remain eight show significant jumps upward.
- Batman sales are no doubt helped by the eminent release of the new Dark Knight movie in a couple of weeks. But compare that to Spider-Man, which despite being the current #1 movie at the box office doesn't show up on the comics chart even once. Clearly DC have a better idea on how to turn movie interest into comic sales than their chief competitor.
- This week's top debut, the first volume in Fantagraphics' Uncle Scrooge stories by the legendary Carl Barks, narrowly misses the top ten. Other debuts include new volumes of Fables, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Sailor Moon; and the Kindle edition of the upcoming Fever Moon graphic novel.
- Dead Watch: Only four Walking Dead collections on the chart this week, though two of those are still in the top ten.
