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

  • For the second week in a row the new Wimpy Kid is at the top of the overall Amazon books chart, and thus stays at the top of the comics chart as well. It finally comes out this coming Tuesday, so we'll see how the release of the pent-up demand affects it chart standing. I wouldn't be surprised to see it stay at the top of the chart through the holidays, but there's also the anticipated boom in Walking Dead sales when the show ends the first half of its season in mid-December. It could make for an interesting battle. 
  • The top ten stays mostly the same this week, except for the sudden re-appearance of Avengers vs. X-Men on the chart. Amazon is saying that it won't be released until November 21, but they shipped mine today...
  • The top debut this week is Grimmer Tales, a book that was originally released back in 2009. I have no idea as to why it is suddenly popular enough to make it chart this week. Other new items include the first collection of Boom!'s Adventure Time comics; Ellen Forney's memoir Marbles; a graphic adaptation of The Book of Revelation; the second volume of Fantagraphics' Carl Barks' Donald Duck comics; the latest Naruto; and a couple more Kindle editions of Wimpy Kid books.
  • Dead Watch: Twelve WD collections on the chart this week, same as last week...
