A pretty slow month if I may say so myself. As opposed to the month of July, August saw fewer titles making into the Top 20 chart of Adult Graphic Novels sold in the US according to ICv2 here. My Hero Academia continues to dominate in the US as four of its volumes occupy the chart for the month of August. Demon Slayer is second, with two volumes in the chart.
Good news is, the charts provided by ICv2 and Publishers Weekly are now in tandem as they track the same period for the month of August which makes it a lot easier for those who intend to gauge the series’ performances. You can however, subscribe to ICv2 here for more data – such as actual sales. Likewise, for a more comprehensive list via Publishers Weekly, can be done here.

In terms of numbers of units sold, Publishers Weekly has them here. I wish they could separate Manga and American Comics, so that we can get the Top 10 instead… Well, just my greed. The first volume of My Hero Academia almost achieve a 10,000 units sold, but fell short of that. Cumulatively, the title’s volumes 1, 2 and 24 sold 25,328 copies that week.
I have been wondering for quite some time now, aren’t these numbers low? Let me know in the comment section below!
