Best-Selling Graphic Novels of 2019

Every year we dig into the files and extract a list of the best-sellers. This year we’ve broken our list into rough categories:

  • All Ages & Young Adult Graphic Novels
  • Manga
  • General Graphic Novels and trades

Here is the list of General Graphic Novels. This will include all of the usual superhero stuff, Image Comics, and heaps of indy publishers. This includes books that were originally serialised in single issues and books that were originally published in graphic novel format. Hardcovers and Paperbacks are also treated equally here.

It looks like the movies might have helped a few sales, but not nearly as much as Netflix series, podcasts, and just seriously good comics. Saga has dominated the list for 5 years, but there hasn’t been any new Saga comics in eighteen months. Can Saga still register with no new content to push it?
