  • Before we dive into the commentary, I should probably point out that this week Marvel joined the Kindle Unlimited program, but as it is the policy of these charts to not include the Kindle editions that are part of KU (on the theory that people for the most part aren't actually buying them!) there are a lot of item that appear on Amazon's charts that have been stripped away from this chart.
  • Yesterday was Star Wars Day, and Amazon had a big sale on Kindle editions on a ton of Star Wars collections. They dominate the chart this week (along with a handful of print editions as well). Twenty-Two of the slots in this week's Top 50 are taken up by Star Wars titles.
  • A handful of non-Star Wars items debuted as well: The Little World of Liz Climo magnet kit, the new One Piece volume, a JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure volume, and Kindle editions of the latest issues of The Walking Dead and Batman.
