The latest update has come in from the folks at ICv2 where they’re looking at the latest data from NPD BookScan to detail what topped the charts in June 2020 when it comes to non-kids graphic novels in the marketplace through various sources.
It is, once again, no surprise that manga dominates the charts with the latest My Hero Academia ranking high and earlier volumes drawing a lot of attention throughout the chart as well. Komi Can’t Communicate continues to find its audience as does Demon Slayer and Dragon Ball Super along with the Uzumaki hardcover. Spy X Family makes a solid debut this month as well.
DC Comics grabs two slots this month with the always available Watchmen as well as the second Doomsday Clock collection
Top Shelf and their biographies do really well with March and They Called Us Enemy continuing to rank very well.
The top of the chart is the Stranger Planet card cover which comes alongside Strange Planet in fourth place, which is good to see a new release inspiring more of the first to be picked up.
