Commentary: 

  • The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse, returns to the top of the chart this week after a one-week displacement.
  • The top debut this week is the massive (800+ pages!) The Action Bible; which has been out for over a year now, so ???
  • Also debuting this week is Maia Kobabe's Gender Queer, proving the Streisand effect is still alive and well.
  • The only other debut this week is the first volume of manga series Frieren: Beyond Journey's End.
  • For some reason Amazon is converting some of my links to the print editions instead going to the Kindle editions. Sorry about that.
  • There are twenty-three manga titles on the chart this week, up two from from last week's recent low.
  • Get vaccinated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Again!)
