Items with asterisks (*) are pre-order items.
Items with dollar signs ($) were part of a deeply discounted Kindle sale this week
N = New listing appearing on list for first time 
R = Item returning to the list after having been off for 1 or more weeks


  • It seems a bit frivolous to talk about comic sales right now, but that's mostly what we do here at YACB these days, so here you go. The only potential sign of change I saw on the chart this week is a larger-than-normal number of Kindle Unlimited items that had to be excised from the summary, but it's hard to say at this point if that's a long-term trend or just a one-off week.
  • The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse stays on top for the sixth straight week.
  • The top debut this week is Ben Katchor's The Dairy Restaurant, an odd sort that isn't quite a comic and isn't quite all illustrated prose either. 
  • Also debuting this week is the new volume of the manga Beastars, and it brings along all the previous volumes as well. It is no doubted boosted by the debut of the anime on Netflix last week.
  • Rounding out our debuts this week are the graphic novel adaptation of The City of Ember (oddly, since it was originally published back in 2012!) and the Kindle edition of The Odd 1s Out: The First Sequel.
  • Note: While (once again) this is being posted on Saturday morning, as always you can rest assured that the rankings were taken as of Friday morning at the post's timestamp.
  • Wash your hands!
