  • The Dilbert desk calendar stays at the top of the chart this week, but has dropped to #260 on the overall Amazon books chart. Other calendars are starting drift down or off the chart, except for the Little Moments of Love 2019 Wall Calendar, which makes a surprise debut in the #2 position this week.
  • The other debuts this week are pre-orders for Hilo Book 5 and the Mister Miracle collection; and the massive Tokyo Ghoul Complete Box Set.
  • The University Effect goes into full gear this week, with PersepolisMausFun HomeUnderstanding ComicsWatchmen & American Born Chinese all making double digit gains.
  • This week saw a selection of twenty-or-so books from DC debuting on Kindle Unlimited for the first time, and they all instantly swarmed up on the chart. This helps to reinforce our belief in the correctness of removing KU titles from the sales chart, as while they may represent reads, they don't involve actual sales.
  • Technical note: While this post is going live on Saturday morning, the sales data was actually collected on Friday morning as per usual, and the post-dating reflects that reality.
