The Walking Dead Shambles Up the Charts

It's a good week to be a zombie.

The second season finale of The Walking Dead television show was the top-rated cable program of the week with nearly nine million viewers. It handily beat its closest competitors, Swamp People and Jersey Shore.

And today over on Amazon, collections of The Walking Dead comic book currently occupy the top fourteen slots on the Comics & Graphic Novels bestseller chart, and 23 of the top 25. The Compendium is #7 on the overall Amazon chart, the first hardcover is #12, the second hardcover is #21, and the first paperback is #27.

(I do my weekly Amazon chart snapshots on Fridays; it will be interesting to see if they continue strong through the rest of the week...)
