  • Allie Brosh's Hyperbole and a Half slips back up into the top slot. It's currently #34 on the overall Amazon book chart. The hardcover and Kindle editions also make appearances on the chart this week. Matthew Inman's Why Grizzly Bears Should Wear Underpants is close behind at #49 on the overall Amazon chart.
  • The top debut this week is Your New Job Title Is Accomplice, the Kindle edition of a Dilbert collection, which leads the way in a batch of several sale-priced Kindle editions on the chart this week, including Cat Versus Human; Astonishing X-Men, Vol. 1: Gifted; and Spider-Man: Big Time.
  • But the big news this week is the fact that the pre-orders for the Kindle editions of the first two issues of Sandman: Overture debut on the chart this week, despite the first issue not being due out until the end of the month (and the second issue not until December!) If this early interest is any indication, the new Sandman series is going to be huge.
  • Manga Watch: There are seven manga volumes on the chart this week, more than we've seen in quite a while, with new volumes of Bleach and Rosario+Vampire joining several volumes of the increasingly popular Attack on Titan.
  • Rounding out the new titles this week are the OGN Avengers: Endless Wartime; the second Kindle issue of DC's Forever Evil crossover; and the collection of Charles Burns's Black Hole.
  • Dead Watch: Earlier in the week the top two slots on the chart were taken up by Walking Dead collections. But despite their slippage to the #4 & #6 slots as of Friday morning, WD still has three collections in the top ten and five in the top fifteen.
  • Kindle Watch: There are twelve kindle editions on the chart this week, up a whopping nine from last week.
