What. 20CB beat Naruto (after only being on the list a week) out of the top spot. That's insane! I was glad to see it on the list a few weeks ago where it was towards the bottom, but having it at #1 is even better Very Happy

Also glad to see Vertical's Princess Knight selling well too Very Happy

Bleach and One Piece disappeared after a single week?! And what about the last volume from Fullmetal Alchemist?

This covers December 11-17. FMA v27 came out on the 20th, so it'll be included in next week's list.

I'd read that 20th Century Boys was a bit of a flop for Viz, which surprised me. Glad it wasn't true.

I tried to read some of it, and dear god is it awful. It's basically what happens when you make the cliche jerk cheerleaders from a tv show the main characters. The only way you can make that comic entertaining would be someone staking all the main characters.

Glad to see Vertical with some titles doing well, they have some great books and have great quality. Twin Spica and Drops of the Gods have been really good. The fact that Twin Spica is under performing but they are going to release the whole thing earns them big points with me. I have slim glimmer of hope that they might finish Nodame or pick up Bartender. Both seem to be down their alley.

Same! I'm so thrilled to see it not only on the list but at the top to boot.

Also super happy to see House of Five Leaves on there.

Aaaand Maximum Ride's still flying high. Wonder how long it'll stay that way once the plot falls apart completely. (Such a shame)

It's 'cus of the Eisner. It boosted interest in 20CB. Hope that'll mean we'll get Monster in 3-in-1 versions now.
