Top 100 Manga Sales In US Comic Shops In 2012

Here’s a look at the charts for 2012 for comics defined as “manga” sold in comic stores and distrubuted in North America by Diamond Comic Distributors.

The charts are dominated by Sailor Moon and Naruto, for the top thirteen spots, aside from the third volume of Empowered, the manga nature of which will no doubt be debated by commentators. Much of the rest of the chart is built up from Bleach, Black Butler and Yu Gi Oh Gx.
