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

  • This week's top seller is the kindle edition of Wolverine: Enemy of the State. It was on sale yesterday, and combined with news about the final Wolverine movie (Logan) also hitting, it was a top-selling proposition.
  • The book that was at the top of the chart for the past four weeks, Big Nate: From the Top, is now nowhere to be seen. It appears that Amazon once again reclassed it out of the regular Comics & Graphic Novels category and back into the kids section. So it goes.
  • If you go over to the regular Comics & Graphic Novels chart on the Amazon site, you'll see a lot of Kindle editions at or near the top of the list that aren't on this summation. That's because earlier this week Amazon debuted its Prime Reading service, where Amazon Prime customers can download and read for free many books, magazines & comics. It appears that Amazon is counting those free downloads as sales for the purposes of their bestsellers charts, but since it has long been the practice here to not include items that are free I'm excluding the Prime Reading titles as well.
  • Casting news about an upcoming movie adaptation of My Friend Dahmer causes the graphic novel to return to the chart, in both print and Kindle editions.
  • New titles to the chart this week include the Kindle edition of the new issue of The Walking Dead, the latest The Wicked + The Divine collection, the sale-priced Kindle edition of Iron Fist Epic Collection, the latest collection of Low, combined hardcover editions of Avatar: The Last Airbender—Smoke and Shadow and Uzumaki, the second volume of Yona of the Dawn, and Heart and Brain: Gut Instincts: An Awkward Yeti Collection.
