Whatever Marvel offered Jim Starlin to lure him back to Thanos paid off big time in August, plus that wee film they had out probably didn't hurt things any. Resulting in high listings for Bendis' latest run on Guardians of the Galaxy and the recent reprinting of Abnett and Lanning's seminal run. Be sure to pick this new printing up as the previous trades have been notoriously difficult to collect for years now. Deadpool, Loki and Punisher take up the rest of Marvel's positions in the top 25.
Over at DC it looks like fans are still flocking to buy the latest Fables even after 20 volumes (not including tie ins.) I'm still languishing around volume 10, must crack on. The watchmen HC is in the top ten. Never underestimate how much this book continues to make for DC. There's been no movie, comic tie in or even gossip about the franchise in months, it just carries on under its own steam for infinity. The consistent and commendable roll out of new 52 continues in a timely fashion with Batman, Flash and Constantine books all doing well.
The first volumes of Sex Criminals and Fuse, published by Image are just outside the top 25 but I doubt there's going to be any job cuts with ALL THREE volumes of Saga in the top 10. If you're on my blog I don't have to explain Saga to you. The 4th volume is scheduled for release in December and of course I'll remind you all closer to the time.
