Commentary:
  • Axe Cop Volume 1 was one of the Kindle Daily Deals this past week, and the residual hangover is enough to push it to the #1 slot on the comics chart this week.
  • The season finale of The Walking Dead aired on television last Sunday, and as we've come to expect that means a surge in demand for The Walking Dead comics. Twenty-three of the Top Fifty this week is a WD edition—nearly half of the chart!
  • Debuting in print on the chart this week are The Harlem Hellfighters by Max Brooks and Caanan White; Neurocomic by Hana RoŇ° & Matteo Farinella; and the latest volume of Naruto.
  • Marvel is having another sale on Kindle collected editions, which is why Marvel 1602 and New Avengers vol. 1 show up on the chart. Captain America: the Winter Soldier, despite also being a part of the sale and having the same title as the big budget blockbuster movie opening today, doesn't reach the top fifty (it would be at #52 if the chart went that far...)
