Top 20 Best-Selling Graphic Novels for March


781124 Top 20 Best Selling Graphic Novels for March

Who would’ve thought that television could actually get people to read?  It’s always been known as having the opposite effect. Bookscan’s list tells another tale as titles like The Walking Dead and A Game of Thrones dominate. While these publications do have other literary tie-ins, the influence of their TV adaptations on sales is undeniable. Also on the list is Diablo III: Book of Cain HC which is based on the popular video game.

Sailor Moon and Naruto are holding on to the 2nd and 3rd spots but manga in general got edged out by numerous volumes of The Walking Dead. The Last Airbender also makes an appearance but I highly doubt it has anything to do with Shamalama’s film adaptation.  (Note: these rankings reflect sales at bookstore chains and online purchases only).
