N = New listing appearing on list for first time
R = Item returning to the list after having been off for 1 or more weeks

  • The top debut this week is the latest issue of Injustice: Gods Among Us on the Kindle. The new Injustice issue nearly always debuts near the top of the chart, but doesn't often claim the #1 spot (this week being the obvious exception).
  • Star Wars Watch: The three Jeffrey Brown Star Wars books (from Scholastic & Chronicle Books) are all in the top ten this week. Meanwhile the first collection of the Brian Wood Star Wars comic series (from Dark Horse) debuts on the chart, but down in the #49 position.
  • Also debuting this week is SCADA and Me: A Book for Children and Management by Robert M. Lee & Jeff Haas. Never heard of it? It's a book for on a particular cybersecurity concern for IT managers and workers, told in comics in a kids' picture book format.
  • Also debuting this week are The Hedge Knight: The Graphic Novel, based on a George R. R. Martin property; the first collection of the current Guardians of the Galaxy comic; a big fat Uncanny X-Men Omnibus, and the first collection of Hickman & Dragotta's East of West.
  • Kindle Watch: Only four of the chart positions this week are taken up by Kindle editions, down one from last week. Three of those four are Injustice issues. Several Marvel collections are on sale on the Kindle right now for under $4 (including Iron Man: The Five Nightmares, World War Hulk, & Spider-Man: Died in Your Arms Tonight) but even at the reduced price there currently isn't enough interest there for those to chart this evening...
  • This week's snapshot is taken in the early evening, rather than the usual morning. So take chart positions and movements this week with a slightly larger grain of salt than usual.
