I’m surprised the Invincible comic didn’t rank, it’s been at the top sellers lists on Amazon and bookstores for months now, even selling out.

Bookscan/ICv2 divides things into different categories and is needlessly confusing. Looking at the April 2021 numbers for comparison:

In the "Top 20 Superhero Graphic Novels", Invincible doesn't rank here because they don't count it as a superhero book. Or maybe these books all sold more than Invincible did. Although the presence of Godzilla, Life is Strange, and Star Wars makes me question the category genre in general. It either doesn't qualify as or sold enough to rank in the Top 20 Adult Graphic Novels either. However, in the "Top 20 Author Graphic Novels", Invincible Compendium #1 ranks at #10.
