    Commentary:
    • Infinity Gauntlet stays on top again this week, still not fading away. However, his week's movie debut, Deadpool, doesn't have the same impact on the Amazon comic chart. Yes a couple of collections show up, but it runs into the problem that many super-hero movies run into in that there isn't a single volume (or series) that one can point to. Compare to Watchmen, which just had a few vague news stories this week about the about the upcoming HBO series and saw the Kindle edition suddenly show up in the top ten!
    • The top debut this week is Emotions Explained with Buff Dudes, a collection of Owlturd comics.
    • Also debuting are I'm NOT just a ScribbleMiss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid Vol. 6, the first Hellboy Omnibus, a new volume of Snotgirl, a graphic novel adaptation of Anne of Green Gables, the Kindle edition of the manga 5 Centimeters per Second, and Kindle single issues of Justice League: No Justice and Injustice 2.
    • You'll note the addition of Amazon affiliate links on the books on the chart. I've never had a desire to make any money from this blog, and I still don't. However, I need to have an active affiliate account (generating a minimum number of sales) in order to keep my access to the Amazon API. So if you are thinking of purchasing one of the books on the chart, you could help me out by using the links to make your purchase. Thanks!
