The Watchmen Effect

According to the latest BookScan numbers, American titles were the majority in the graphic novel category. Interesting to note that three of the titles- Dark Knight, Watchmen (#1 on the charts) and Killing Joke - are over 20 years old and still selling like hotcakes. Mark Millar's Wanted- also recently adapted for film- is also doing well. Funny, the movies don't seem to do much for the monthies, but have a huge impact in the bookchains.
