Ok, it's time for our run down of our 100 top selling graphic novels of 2018.

Buckle up because this is going to take a while, and yeah I'll be taking breaks here and there.

For coffee.

Plus I'm still in work so, I might have to do some of that too.
Before we start I just want to give you a quick overview of our year in graphic novels.

This year we sold 5113 different titles in store. (that's a lot)

Graphic novel sales were UP on 2017 by 4%. (yay)

Part works aren't included.
The way we calculate rankings is by number of units sold.

If 2 books sold the same amount of units then the book with the higher retail price takes the higher place.

If there's a tie situation where the books have the same RRP then they're tied and will share the rank.
We're not tagging creators on this rundown, it'd be crazy to tag every writer, artist, inker, letterer, colourist, assistant editor and editor for each entry. But for a change if you want to tag creators work away.
This year was different, we didn't do separate lists for manga, art books, or novels.

So if you're surprised your favorite book isn't in the list odds are it was probably close to it, but the inclusion of manga etc meant some books that were in the top 100 before aren't now.
And sorry everyone but no.

I won't check where your favorite book came if you ask sorry.

I'm just focusing on the top 100 today.
Lastly, these sales only reflect our store and our store only, your LCS might be totally different.

Odds are it is.

We'll be posting this list across our social media platforms later on as well.
So, eh, queue the music I guess and lets get on with it.

@HellboyRandom 22 ain't bad at all.
And our 20th best selling book of 2018 is Attack on Titan volume 1.
Number 19 on the list is Isola volume 1. (this is our store exclusive edition and it's freaking gorgeous)
The 18th entry is Saga volume 9.
17 is Batman (Rebirth) volume 1 I am Gotham
Our 16th highest selling graphic novel of 2018 is Dark Nights Metal.
The 15th is Tokyo Ghoul volume 1
14th is Civil War II
Lucky number 13 is none other than the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

Side note on this is that the netflix show catapulted this from the bottom end of the list to our 13th best selling book.

We kind of figured this may happen so while it was easy to get, we got A LOT.
Number 12 on the list, the Killing Joke.
And number 11, Eternal.

That was a nice surprise.
Top 10 time!
At number 10.

Our 6th best selling book of 2018 is BATMAN WHITE KNIGHT

Which is bloody impressive for a book that came out so late in the year.
