BookScan Reveals Top 20 Graphic Novels For November 2016

2 min read

dc-superhero-girls-coverThe rankings of what’s moving in the bookstore market has arrived for the month of November thanks to BookScan and there’s certainly some familiarity to it. With The Walking Dead in full gear on TV, the chart has a lot of those graphic novels getting picked up, especially the oversized compendiums as they’re in the top five with three of them. The March books are doing fantastic thanks to the accolades and well-deserved recognition, and DC Comics has its familiar things here with The Killing Joke and a Harley Quinn book. DC Comics also makes some inroads with the original graphic novel for DC Superhero Girls with Hits & Myths, which is great to see. Marvel, on the other hand, has an almost non-existent presence as only the first volume of the new Black Panther series charted.

On the manga side of the chart, Viz Media essentially kills it with a number of titles charting, including two pricey books with The Legend of Zelda and Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure. The publisher also had strong showings for One-Punch Man and My Hero Academia alongside a couple of volumes of Tokyo Ghoul.
