- Allie Brosh's Hyperbole and a Half rules the chart this week, taking the top three slots with the paperback, Kindle, and hardcover editions. It is currently the #8 book on the overall book chart.
- The new Sandman mini-series, Overture, came out with its first issue this week. As expected the Kindle version charts, and the halo effect also brought other Sandman comics with it, including the bargain-priced first issue of the original series on Kindle, the paperback and Kindle edition of the first collection, and somewhat surprisingly the $90+ first Sandman Omnibus.
- The new Asterix graphic novel may be all the rage in Europe, but after one week on the U.S. chart it disappears. Which means that stateside, Blue Is the Warmest Color is the best-selling Bandes dessinée with both the paperback and Kindle editions making the chart.
- I'm continually amused that in many cases movie trailers seem more likely to drive comic sales than the actual movies themselves. This week a new trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past was released, and the paperback and Kindle editions of the graphic novel hop up onto the chart.
- Most of the debuts this week (excepting Sandman #1) are in the bottom of the chart, including the new Dilbert day-to-day calendar, mangas No Matter How I Look at It and Attack on Titan 8, and James Patterson's latest Maximum Ride.
- Kindle Watch: Ten Kindle editions make the chart this week, up four from last week.
- Dead Watch: Seven Walking Dead collections make the chart this week, down one from last week.
