The Bleeding Cool Bestseller List – A Weekly Comic Store Top Ten Chart?

So I was thinking about charts. We run the ComiXology chart which shows sales through the iOS App on a Wednesday. And was wondering if I could do the same for comic shops. Recording their sales on a Wednesday and Thursday and seeing which books dominate, every week. A New York Times Bestseller List for comic stores, just waiting to be mocked by Brian Azzarello. Consider this an inaugural attempt. It is deeply flawed, it only records the sales levels of three stores, rather than the thousands the NYT monitors, there is no attempt to equate levels of sales. Right now, it is nothing more than a curio.

But if the curio grows, it could be more.

For comic store sales for the 24th-25th April, 2013. The Bleeding Cool Bestseller List.
