The Phantom has to fight a gorilla with his arms chained together on the cover of The Phantom #1853 (2020) by Luca Erbetta.

Commentary: 

  • The Far Side Off-The-Wall Calendar swaps places with The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse again this week to once again take the top spot on the chart. Calendars are starting to be discounted this week (many at 50%) so I don't expect them to stick around on the chart much longer.
  • Just two debuts this week: a new volume of I Was Reincarnated as the 7th Prince (digital only) and an upcoming volume of Jujutsu Kaisen.
  • There are thirty-six manga titles on the chart this week, the same as last week.
  • The University Effect appears to be a bit delayed this year, with Persepolis & The Complete Maus just now appearing in the lower half of the chart. Maybe schools delaying the start of classes due to Omnicron has something to do with it?
  • Speaking of: Get your vaccine shots! All of 'em!

Remember when Sunday was Monkey Covers Day here at YACB? We haven't regularly posted a Monkey Cover since 2013, but maybe it's time to return to the tradition?

Superman: Man of Tomorrow #5

We welcome in the New Year with Superman punching Titano on the cover of Superman: Man of Tomorrow #5 (2020) by Paul Pelletier & Drew Hennessy.
