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

Commentary:
  • Moving into the top spot this week is LEWSER!, the latest Doonesbury collection.
  • The passing of Representative and civil rights activist John Lewis sees his graphic novel trilogy March move into the top ten, all three volumes plus the slipcase collection. A sad occasion, but good that people are seeking to learn more about his legacy.
  • The top debut this week is The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords -Legendary Edition-; it actually came out three years ago but is just now hitting the best-seller chart, so ???
  • Also debuting this week are The Last Kids on Earth and the Cosmic Beyond (a hybrid prose/comics book for kids); a new volume of Beastars; Adrian Tomine's new comics memoir The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Cartoonist; and for some reason the Kindle edition of DC Comics/Dark Horse: Batman vs. Predator (Maybe because Dark Horse is losing the Predator license to Marvel at the end of the year, and after that there's very little chance these crossovers will be available...)
  • Wash you hands. Wear a face mask when in public, enclosed spaces. Practice sensible social distancing. Read comics.

  • The top debut this week is the Kindle edition of the first collection of The Old Guard, the comic that is the basis of the new hit Netflix movie. In fact, every single possible Old Guard comic—both collections and Kindle editions of the individual comics—debuts on the chart this week! (The only item missing is the very first digital issue, which is currently free and thus not eligible for this chart.)
  • The only other debut item this week is a Deluxe edition of the Hellsing manga.

Commentary: 
  • The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse stays on top for the nineteenth straight week.
  • The top debut this week is Negan Lives #1, a special Walking Dead print comic that was only available to comic shops, meaning its appearance there is solely based on third-party sellers. 
  • Other debuts this week are led by LEWSER!, an upcoming Doonesbury collection. Also debuting are Batman: The Adventures Continue #7 on the Kindle, and pre-orders for a new One-Punch Man volume and Sarah Andersen's upcoming OGN Fangs.
  • So sorry that this isn't going up until July 10—apparently I forgot to hit Publish in Blogger and didn't notice until I went to do this week's Anazon chart! 
  • Wash you hands. Wear a face mask when in public, enclosed spaces. Practice sensible social distancing. Read comics.

Commentary: 
  • The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse stays on top for the eighteenth straight week.
  • The top debut this week is the pre-order for the Dune graphic novel adaptation (due out in October). Last week's top debut, the pre-order for September's Solutions and Other Problems, is gone from the top fifty entirely this week, fairly typical for pre-orders for highly anticipated books that aren't due our for several months, and I'd expect to see Dune to likewise disappear for a while until we get closer to its release date.
  • The only other debut this week is the collection of Superman Smashes the Klan. It actually was released over a month ago, but now finally seems to be gaining some traction.
  • Typically the week before Father's Day would see Jeffrey Brown's Darth Vader and Son and Vader's Little Princess in the top ten. They are both on the chart this week, but somewhat lower than usual.
  • Several DC hardcover collections—Harleen, The Batman Who Laughs, DCeased, and Batman: Last Knight on Earth—return to the chart this week, as they were part of Amazon's week-long 3 for 2 sale.
  • Sorry this chart isn't being posted until Sunday, though the chart positions are from Friday afternoon (as per the timestamp on the post).
  • Wash you hands. Wear a face mask when in public, enclosed spaces. Practice sensible social distancing. Read comics.

Commentary: 
  • The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse stays on top for the fifteenth straight week.
  • Last week's Avatar: The Last Airbender surge explodes into full-on Avatar-mania this week, taking up eighteen spots in the top fifty, including six of the top ten. Most of these are sale-priced Kindle editions (which appeared on the chart before as physical copies) but there are a few of the hardcover library editions as well.
  • This top debut this week is the pre-order for Tommy Siegel's cartoon collection I Hope This Helps (due out in October). Aside from all the aforementioned Avatar books, the other debuts are pre-orders for the next volumes of the manga series Demon Slayer & Dragon Ball Super.
  • Things have pretty much returned to pre-pandemic levels as far as the balance between Kindle Unlimited (etc.) and regular items on the chart this week.
  • Sorry this is going up so late—rankings were compiled Friday evening but aren't being posted until Saturday morning.
  • Wash you hands. Wear a face mask when in public, enclosed spaces. Practice sensible social distancing. Read comics.

Commentary: 
  • The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse stays on top for the fourteenth straight week.
  • There was a huge surge of Avatar: The Last Airbender titles onto the chart this week, both Kindle and print editions. Presumably this is because the animated series came to Netflix this past week (where it is currently the #1 streaming title for North America). 
  • The only debut this week is an issue of the digital-first series Batman: The Adventures Continue.
  • While there were still a good chunk of Kindle Unlimited, Prime Reading, and other types of digital comics that we strip out of the list on the chart this week, there were a good deal fewer than in previous recent weeks. Partly this is due to the aforementioned Avatar surge displacing a bunch of other titles from the top fifty, but I suspect it's also due to the fact that Amazon's print book distribution is no longer delaying shipping for three weeks out like in recent past weeks.
  • Wash you hands. And practice sensible social distancing. Read comics.
