April BookScan--Top 20 Graphic Novels
'The Winter Soldier' Charts
Published: 05/08/2014 04:33am
Marvel’s Winter Soldier collection was the perfect tie-in to Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which was based on the storyline in the book (see "Brubaker Lauds 'Winter Soldier' Publishing"). There were two DK Publishing titles featuring Marvel characters in the Top 20.
Image Comics had another amazing month in bookstores in April, with nine of the top 20 titles, including all three Saga volumes and six The Walking Dead volumes. Saga Vol. 3, which shipped in March, slipped only one rank to #3, down from #2 in its debut month.
The other big hit was Kodansha's Attack on Titan manga, which placed four volumes in the Top 20, the same number as in March. There were seven manga titles in all, down one from March; the others were VIZ's Bleach and Naruto and Yen Press's Sword Art Online, which hit the Top 20 for the first time.
BOOM! Studios rounded out the Top 20 with its latest Adventure Time volume, under its KaBOOM! imprint.
