BookScan Top 20 Graphic Novels For April 2015 Revealed

BookScan Top 20 Graphic Novels For April 2015 Revealed The bookstore market rankings continue to be really interesting to watch after some of the changes put into play earlier this year about what gets tracked. While The Walking Dead usually dominates and populates a lot of the chart, they get edged out this time by the new Calvin and Hobbes release. John Lewis’ March books continue to do well too as they’re feeling timely and important and reaching outside of the traditional graphic novel market. Superhero material does gain a bit more ground this month with familiar books still there and Ms. Marvel ranking high with its second volume, and we also get Rage of Ultron making its place on the list.

On the manga side, only four books made it to the list this time around and only one of them new to it with Big Hero 6 from Yen Press. Kodansha Comics ranks the highest with Attack on Titan Vol. #15 in 6th place while Viz Media grabs 12th with Naruto Vol. #69 and and Kodansha again with Attack on Titan Vol. #1 at 14th place.
