Holiday Bestsellers: 2011

.

Here is a listing of the current comics bestsellers on BN.com, scanned at 11:20 AM this Tuesday, December 20, 2011

Tuesday was the last day of free shipping, so sales might drop off this week, then pick back up on unBoxing Day (December 25) as loved ones unpack new Nook readers and receive  gift cards, encouraging people to visit the website.

This is the bestselling listing for “graphic novels” which rank #1,000 or better.  The list is arranged by rank, the number is the OVERALL rank on BN.com, compared to other titles.  Anything in the Top 100 is basically a bestseller.  I’ve filtered out stuff that links here, such as the text version of the Alchemist, and the Star Trek Vault.

The second list is “comic strips”, and there is some overlap (Pogo, for example).

Oh, and let’s include “Nook Books” as well…  They have a “Nook Comics” page:

259 titles!  Including the new ones from Viz! And single issues from Archie, like the Kiss tie-in!  $1.99!  (Ut-oh, the comics shops will complain!  Or at least the ones which stock Archie comics.)

So what’s the bestselling graphic novel e-book at BN.com?

 Holiday Bestsellers: 2011

Thor, Volume 1 [NOOK Book]

by J. Michael Straczynski, Olivier Coipel

Ranking #14,286.

Want some historical perspective?  Here are my 2008 scans.

All of this information is publicly found on the Barnes & Noble website. You can do the same.

I also kept the prices, as discounts can affect the popularity of a title.  There is no easy way for me to post the Suggested Retail Price, so you’ll have to click to see.  Some titles are featured on the graphic novel homepage, and/or are holiday specials.

I have kept the links for both titles and authors, which redirect to the Barnes & Noble website.   There are no other connections between this post and that company.
