ICv2 posted market reports for graphic novel and manga sales in the United States for 2013 through the first half of the fourth fiscal quarter on Thursday. According to the ICv2 White Paper released at the ICv2 Conference, overall graphic novel sales are up six percent, with manga growing faster than graphic novels overall. ICv2 credits the surge in manga sales to Kodansha's Attack on Titan release, re-issues of Sailor Moon, the overall growth of Yen Press and the success of Yen Press and Seven Seas Entertainment's Alice in the... volumes, and continued sales of popular titles and newer hits by Viz Media.

Until this year, manga sales had dropped in recent years while digital sales have grown.
