- So how does the Kindle edition of Watchmen suddenly show up in the top slot this week? Amazon started offering it on sale for just $4, showing that at the right price a 25+-year-old acclaimed graphic novel can beat out adorable Sith Lords, video-game tie-ins, and Diaries by Wimpy Kids and Dorks.
- Last week's top comic, the pre-order for a Hyperbole and a Half collection, slides out of the top fifty entirely. While flash-in-the-pans like this are not uncommon for pre-orders for popular Webcomics collections, this is a rather extreme case. But don't worry, it'll be sure to be back on the chart again closer to its October release date.
- Injustice Watch: No surprise that the top debut this week is the latest issue of the digital Injustice: Gods Among Us. Seven of the eighteen extant issues of Injustice make the chart this week.
- The only other debut this week is the latest volume in Fantagraphics' collections of Carl Barks' Donald Duck material down at #46.
- Dead Watch: Only four Walking Dead collections on the chart this week, the same as last week. The second Compendium slips out of the top ten, and the first Compendium nearly does so as well.
- Diary Watch: The Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Dork Diaries franchises between them take up seventeen of the slots on the chart this week, up four from last week.
- Kindle Watch: Twenty of the chart positions this week are taken up by Kindle editions, up one from last week.
