File under “Zombies really are unstoppable, after all,” as ICv2 measures the success of The Walking Dead in bookstores last month:
Not content to hold the top two slots on the November according to the ranking of “Top 20 Graphic Novels” sold in the book channel provided exclusively to ICv2 by Nielsen BookScan, Robert Kirkman’s zombie drama also shows up in positions 6, 8, 11, 13, 15, and 19 for a whopping eight titles in the top 20.
The rest of the top 5 bookstore releases are Building Stories (the new Chris Ware release), Superman Earth One Volume Two and, in a surprise appearance, a Marvel book: Avengers Vs. X-Men. Wonder if this bodes well for the Marvel NOW! future for Marvel’s bookstore fortunes…?
