I'm happy to see so many titles doing well. I have to admit I was surprised to see Shaman King on the list. For some reason I thought it wasn't very popular. Shows what I know.

Watchmen certainly deserves to be at the top of the list more than Naruto and Bleach.

QFT. But if there wasn't the movie coming out next year, it more than likely wouldn't even be there, which is quite saddening.

Amazing, 16 titles and maybe only 1 I would list as a personal favorite (and a guilty pleasure at that).

Maybe I should quit my job here, I'm obviously out of touch with the fandom Razz

Rosario vol. 2 made the list for the 2nd month in a row. 6th in August and 16th in September. The series is doing very well.

It's "Watchmen" not Watchman.

Nice number of manga on that list, but they probably won't be able to beat out Watchmen anytime soon.

Jeez, SK vol. 18 is out already? I've been forgetting to keep up with the new sped-up release schedule....

Always happy to see it selling well, though Anime smile

To be honest, if I hadn't gone to see The Dark Knight with a friend who was familiar with Watchmen long before the movie was announced (and was nice enough to loan me his copy of the GN afterwards), I wouldn't know anything about it myself.

Given how old Watchmen is, I don't think it not being on the charts would really be that bad of a thing. Only things like a movie being made are able to get older titles on the top selling list, which is of course also why so many Batman titles have been popping up there lately.

With the recent publicity of Stan Lee and Hiroyuki Takei collaborating together on Ultimo, I'm not surprised to see Shaman King on the list. People are curious about his art and wondering how it's going to mesh with Marvel.

Hmm, I didn't know two of Tokyopop's three titles on this list were published by Viz. That's just amazing. To think that 13 or the 15 titles are Viz published when Del Rey has one and TP has three. How did that happen?
