Sailor Moon Tops September Graphic Novel Sales in U.S. Bookstores
posted on by Sarah Nelkin
The seventh volume of Naoko Takeuchi's Sailor Moon manga and the 58th volume of Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto ranked #1 and #2 on Nielsen BookScan's list of top 20 graphic novels in American bookstores for September.
Other manga top-sellers include Yotsuba&! volume 11 at #6, Alice in the Country of Clover volume 2 at #9, Bleach volumes 47 and 46 taking #11 and #12, and One Piece volume 64 at #13. The previous month's #1, Frank Miller's Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, fell to #7.
The BookScan rankings represent sales at Barnes & Noble and other book chains, independent bookshops, and online purchases — but not sales at comic book stores, Walmart, and some other venues.
