Comixology Bestseller List 10th November 2018 – The Walking Dead Beats Batman

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 & graphic novels. As always, I hope you find it interesting and informative.

Once again, The Walking Dead and Batman take the top two spots for the first Wednesday of the month. They’re not glued to those spots, they’re welded. Their  places on this list are as guaranteed as the Golden State Warriors winning another championship. It’s as guaranteed as salmon swimming upstream every fall. It’s as guaranteed as the President tweeting something crazy. It’s as guaranteed as me stubbing my toe on that box of magazines I’ve asked a certain someone to move a million times. (I know you read this.) The point is unless Saga returns and releases the same week, I don’t see either of these two titles budging.

Earlier this year, DC took a risk. They ended Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps, a title that sold well enough to just get into or come close to the Top 10 every weeks. In its place would be The Green Lantern, a monthly comic from the creative team of Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp. Well it looks like the risk paid off, because The Green Lantern has debuted at No. 3, coming right behind Batman and ahead of Justice League. Hal is back with a vengeance, giving DC some much needed help on the first week of each month.

But despite this success, Marvel snapped its winless streak and won the week, taking 5 spots in the Top 10, beating DC (3) and Image (2). It really helps when Marvel releases two event books in a single week.

Poor Deathstroke. Once people heard he was fighting Batman for a six issue story, he got a double digit boost, getting exposure from a brand new audience. But now that Batman’s gone, Deathstroke has dropped back down to the numbers it had before the arc. Meaning that Batfans believed the arc was required reading, and ditched Deathstroke once it was over. So I feel bad for Slade, failing to grab any new readers. On the plus side, (SPOILER ALERT) he’s off the hook for child support.

And on a personal note, I am delighted people are recognizing the brilliance of Kaijumax. This incredibly underrated series was ranked at No. 81 in June, but has now moved up to No. 63. (In your face, Goblin Slayer Side Story). I know I’m supposed to be impartial and look at these sales objectively, but screw it. Kaijumax doesn’t get enough love, and I’ll be openly rooting for it every issue.
