Commentary:
  • Amazon lowered the price on the two Walking Dead Compendia this week to just $25 (each), which combined with the return of the show to television results in their jumping ahead of Hyperbole for the first time in quite a while. They are currently #2 and #3 on the overall Amazon books chart, outpaced only by the bargain-priced hardcover of the soon-to-be-a-major-motion-picture The Fault in Our Stars.
  • The top two debuts this week are Kindle versions of single issues, the latest installments of Injustice and The Walking Dead.
  • Also debuting this week are Attack on Titan 4 (the only AoT volume that hadn't charted yet), and the pre-order for Fabien Vehlmann & Kerasco√ęt's Beautiful Darkness.
  • For some reason Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe returns to the chart. No sales, no media attention—maybe people are simply interested in reading it this week?
