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


Commentary:

* Pretty boring at the top of the list this week, with just a minor re-arranging of the chairs. Cabin Fever is at #55 on the overall list; The Walking Dead Compendium moves up to #181 on the overall list.

* Only two debuts this week, both at the bottom of the list: Jim Henson's Tale of Sand, and the upcoming latest Sailor Moon.

* Dead Watch: The Walking Dead takes an unprecedented eighteen slots in the Amazon Top 50. Where last week favored the hardcovers, there was a surge this week in the paperback collections.

* Add in the Invincible hardcover, and Robert Kirkman has 38% of the top fifty. Now if only we could get some of these people to buy Super Dinosaur...
