Welcome to the Comixology Bestseller list, your guide to see how well your favorite titles are selling digitally. Every week I’ll post the ranking of every new title, plus a ranking of the best-selling volumes and graphic novels. As always, I hope you find it interesting and informative.

West Coast Avengers #1 cover by Stefano Caselli

Well, it’s a fifth Wednesday, and since the industry seems content to release a fraction of its usual output, I’m only going to a fraction of the analysis. I mean, what can we learn sales-wise anything from a fifth Wednesday? That all the mid-tier titles dominate when all the top-tier titles are on break? Seriously, all of the books in the New Issue Rankings would be 8-10 spots lower any other week. Analysis would be pointless, because these rankings would not hold up under normal conditions. So I don’t feel bad phoning it in on fifth Wednesdays. Can’t get juice from a rock.

I guess the one observation I can make is last week’s surprise hit West Coast Avengers made it No. 1 in the Old Issue Rankings, obviously benefitting from good word of mouth. I still don’t know much stock to put in the Old Issue Rankings, but if WCA gets a boost next month, we’ll know why.

And that’s it. Really, I’ve got nothing more. Consider this the Deadpool end credits scene. I’m already in my bathrobe. See you next week…
