  • Once again Strange Planet is at the top of the comics chart ahead of its release later this month. And once again it is the actual top comic, coming in at #4 on the overall Amazon books chart with Guts at #10 and two Dog Man volumes at #6 and #11.
  • The top debut this week is Sandra Boynton's Every Day's a Fabulous Holiday 2020 Wall Calendar, joining the growing number of comic calendars showing up as we approach the new year, like the also-new-to-the-chart Pusheen 2020 Wall Calendar.
  • This week sees the Kindle editions of several manga series' first volumes make their debut on the chart: Drifting DragonsEden ZeroThe Quintessential Quintuplets and Tokyo Tarareba Girls. I suspect that either there was a sale at some point, or they rotated off of Kindle Unlimited. A new volume of longtime manga staple One Piece also debuts.
  • And rounding out this week's debuts are the Kindle editions of two debut titles in Marvel's X-Men revival: X-Force and New Mutants; though both come in quite a bit lower than previous titles in the revival, posting toward a potential title fatigue with so many new titles (many of which will be coming out twice monthly!)
