R = Item returning to the list after having been off for 1 or more weeks

  • Still on top is Hyperbole and the Half, though it has slipped a bit on the overall books chart to #52.
  • The University Effect is in full swing this week: Persepolis, Maus & Fun Home all move up into the top ten, with Understanding Comics, Watchmen, American Born Chinese, and Abina and the Important Men also making returns to the chart.
  • Last week's DC Kindle sale has ended and those books disappear from the chart. Some of the Marvel and Image Kindle collections remain on sale, though of those only Steven King's N. and Infinity Gauntlet remain in the top fifty.
  • The top debut this week is the latest volume of Naruto. Two other manga volumes, the latest for Monster Masume and Attack on Titan, also debut.
  • Two regular comic issues on the Kindle also debut this week: The latest issue of The Walking Dead and the first issue of the new volume of Injustice. Injustice debuts relatively low compared to what it was selling at the end of its previous volume; it is possible that its audience didn't know that it was returning. Alternately the lay-off between volumes may have dampened enthusiasm...
  • Much like this week's new comics shipments in the Midwest, this week's planned 2013 Amazon Year-End Round-Up was delayed due to weather. Look for it early next week instead.
