It is amazing how well the Walking Dead is still selling. You would think that anyone that wanted to read it would have read it by now. Shit, even my Dad has read all 17 volumes published so far. It is a testiment to the quality of storytelling and the power word of mouth can have on sales. Any retailer that has sold one of those v.1's can pretty much guarantee themselves 17 return sales.
Good to see so many other creator owned titles. Manhattan Projects Volume 2 is doing serious business at my LCS and SAGA is putting Vaughn's great, great grandkids through college.
Good news for Batman fans as DC continue to slowly trickle the New 52 out in trade. Only one Marvel NOW book made it into the top 25. The Uncanny Avengers hardcover is nice, I'm a big fan of Marvel's new printed HC's but they don't come cheap. Also Uncanny X - Force is one of the few titles I collected in singles so it's good to see it getting some love.
