  • Also debuting this week are new volumes of the manga series The Promised Neverland, Boruto, and Chainsaw Man.
  • Just thirty-four manga volumes on the chart this week, down two from last week.

  • Only thirty-six manga volumes on the top fifty chart this week,  the fewest in several weeks.
  • It was confirmed this week that the Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point collection will include the game codes from the individual issues, so expect to see it a best-seller for quite some time (even as it isn't to be released until September).
  • Wash your hands. Wear a face mask when in public, enclosed spaces. Practice sensible social distancing. Get a vaccine when it is available for you. Read comics!

Commentary: 

  • The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse, stays on top of the chart again this week.
  • This week's top (and only) debut is the Kindle edition of Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point #1—which does not come with a game code so perhaps there are some people who are looking to get the comic in order to read it?
  • The biggest chart mystery of the week: What caused Lynda Barry's What It Is—originally published in 2008—to suddenly appear in the top ten?
  • Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba—The Movie was #2 at the box office this past weekend, and unlike some other comics book movies of the past it is able to turn box office success into comic success, with thirteen volumes of the manga on the top fifty chart this week.
  • In all forty of the top fifty spots on the chart are taken by manga volumes, which is actually down a bit from last week's record-tying forty-two.
  • Wash your hands. Wear a face mask when in public, enclosed spaces. Practice sensible social distancing. Get a vaccine when it is available for you. Read comics!

Commentary: 

  • The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse, stays on top of the chart again this week.
  • The top debut this week is the Kindle edition of the first
    Invincible Compendium. It is joined on the chart by the debuts of the Kindle editions of the second and third Compendia, as well as the return of the print edition of the first Compendium. No doubt this interest in Invincible comics is driven by the debut last week of the Invincible animated series on Amazon Prime.
  • Also debuting this week are pre-orders for the Kindle editions of a couple of forthcoming Star Wars comics (Star Wars: The High Republic #6 & Star Wars: Darth Vader #13); new or forthcoming volumes of the manga series Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Don't Toy With Me, Miss Nagatoro, and The Quintessential Quintuplets; an Attack on Titan Season 2 Manga Box Set; and the Godzilla vs. Kong prequel comic Godzilla: Dominion.
  • Despite the Invincible infusion on the chart, this week sees a slight increase in the number of manga titles, back up to forty (from thirty-nine last week).
  • Sorry this post is going up a week late. It was compiled on the morning of April 2 as per the time stamp.
  • Wash your hands. Wear a face mask when in public, enclosed spaces. Practice sensible social distancing. Get a vaccine when it is available for you. Read comics!

Commentary: 

  • The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse, stays on top of the chart again this week.
  • The top debut this week is the Kindle edition of the first issue of Marvel's new
    Alien series. 
  • Also debuting this week are a new volume of Toilet-bound Hanako-kun; and the most random thing in a while: the pre-order for the Kindle edition of an upcoming issue of Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures that isn't due out until the end of June. 
  • There are thirty-nine manga entries on the chart this week, which seems like a lot—and it is, historically—but that's actually down from the previous two weeks where the totals for manga were over forty!
  • Wash your hands. Wear a face mask when in public, enclosed spaces. Practice sensible social distancing. Get a vaccine when it is available for you. Read comics!

Top Comic Book Movies of 2020

Here are the domestic grosses of comic book-related movies released in 2020, according to Box Office Mojo:

  1. Birds of Prey: $84M
  2. Wonder Woman 1984: $46M
  3. The New Mutants: $24M
  4. My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising: $13M
  5. Bloodshot: $13M
  6. The Empty Man: $3M
  7. Lupin III: The First: $0.1M

Obviously COVID-19 restrictions played havoc with the movie release schedule in 2020. Of the movies above, only Birds of Prey was released before the pandemic lockdowns hit, with Bloodshot being particularly unlucky as it was released on March 13 right before widespread lockdowns were enacted. Most wide-release, tent-pole movies were delayed and delayed and delayed again, until 2021 (or perhaps later). Wonder Woman 1984 was released to both theaters and HBO Max on December 25, while the long-delayed The New Mutants was finally dumped into theaters in August.


Movies 'scheduled' for release in 2021 include: Demon Slayer- Kimetsu no Yaiba (April); Black Widow (July); The Suicide Squad (Aug); Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (Sep); Venom: Let There Be Carnage (Sep); The Addams Family 2 (Oct); Eternals (Nov); Spider-Man: No Way Home (Dec); The King's Men (Dec).

(Moreso than previous years, this schedule is subject to change!)

Commentary: 

  • The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse, stays on top of the chart again this week.
  • The top debut this week—taking both the #2 and #3 spots in its hardcover and paperback editions—is a collection of the Webcomic Lore Olympus, which isn't due out until October so I guess that people are really excited about this!
  • Also debuting in pre-order for an October release is a collection of BRZRKR, the comic co-written by Keanu Reeves.
  • Dr. Seuss Goes to War debuts this week due to media attention (though the Kindle edition showed up for a couple of weeks a couple of years ago).
  • The rest of this week's debuts are pre-orders for manga titles: new volumes of Berserk Deluxe & The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess; and a Demon Slayer Box Set.
  • Thirty-eight of this week's top fifty are manga titles, which is up one from last week and likely a new record.
  • This week's top fifty was gathered on Saturday rather than the usual Friday; sorry about that!
  • Wash your hands. Wear a face mask when in public, enclosed spaces. Practice sensible social distancing. Get a vaccine when it is available for you. Read comics!
