  • The pre-order for Strange Planet remains on top of the Amazon comics chart this week. "But wait a minute," I hear you say: "isn't Raina Telgemeier's Guts the #1 best-selling book on Amazon right now? How come it isn't on the chart at all?!?" That's due to Amazon's strange practice of segregating most (though not all) of the kids graphic novels away from the regular comics chart and onto the Children's Comics & Graphic Novels best sellers chart. It's a practice they began suddenly several years ago and it drastically changed the nature of the regular Amazon comics best sellers chart. So if you're every wondering where the real best-selling comics are, they're with the cool kids on the children's GN chart.
  • The top debut this week is the Kindle edition of House of X #5, which is joined in the top ten by the debut of Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins II #3 and further down the chart by Spider-Man #1.
  • Debuting in print this week are the first volume of the manga series The Way of the Househusband; the latest volume of the manga Made in Abyss; a collected edition of Stranger Things: The Other Side; and pre-orders for the upcoming new volume of Judd Winick's Hilo and Chris Ware's Rusty Brown.
