Commentary: 

  • The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse, stays on top of the chart again this week. Despite having been out for over a year now (it was released in October 2019) it is still racking up the sales: it is #12 this week on the overall Amazon chart, and #3 on the Publisher's Weekly chart. And despite all this it isn't talked about at all in the comics-verse. Yes, I know that it's status as a comic is somewhat borderline, but it's just as much a comic—if not moreso—than Wimpy Kid.
  • But sure, let's talk about how the first issue of Star Wars: The High Republic has over 200K of sales in the direct market. While a good amount of those sales are from speculation and multiple covers, there's at least enough actual interest in the comic as something to read to make the Kindle edition the top debut for this week.
  • Other debuts this week are mostly new volumes of manga: Black Clover, Spy x Family, and the Kindle edition of My Hero Academia, Vol. 26. The final new title is Sketch's An Epitaph for Professionalism, squeezing in at the #50 spot.
  • Wash your hands. Wear a face mask when in public, enclosed spaces. Practice sensible social distancing. Read comics!
