Items with asterisks (*) are pre-order items.

N = New listing appearing on list for first time 
R = Item returning to the list after having been off for 1 or more weeks

  • The pre-order for the Overwatch: Anthology stays on top for a second week. Will it stay on top until its release in October? Probably not, but even two straight weeks at #1 is pretty impressive for a pre-order book not due out for another five months.
  • Apparently The Lost Fleet is a thing? Must be, because the pre-orders for the Kindle comics issues show up this week, with the first issue at the #3 spot.
  • There's a Kindle Marvel sale going on right now, with books like Planet HulkWolverine: Old Man Logan and Warlock by Jim Starlin going for just $3, and pushing them up on the chart. (There are actually a lot of Marvel Kindle editions on Amazon's chart, but most of those are there due to being on KindleUnlimited, so we remove them from these sales charts.)
  • The only physical debuts this week are a couple of DC Rebirth collections: Batman/The Flash: The Button Deluxe Edition; and The Flash Vol. 2.
  • The two extant Rebirth Wonder Woman collections appear on the chart again, do doubt due somewhat to next week's movie. I should imagine that the collection labeled Volume 1 ("The Lies") will be pretty impenetrable to anyone not versed in recent Wonder Woman comics lore, while the collection labeled Volume 2 ("Year One") would be a much better introduction to those civilians looking for something to read because they are excited by the movie. Too bad about the numbering then.
