Top Selling Manga of 2018

We’re kicking off the new year by looking back at top sellers from 2018.
We crack through a LOT of manga, so let’s see what the big movers were

In Japan comics sell in crazy quantities, and in various formats. Ever since the introduction about 15 years ago of the TankĊbon style volume
to the US market manga has exploded in popularity. These volumes usually feature the art laid out in the original Japanese right-to-left format, and often feature sound effects written in Japanese, giving an experience very close to reading the original work.

The range of stories available blasts across all genres and appeals to a wide range of demographics. Stories cover romance, adventure, horror, drama, comedy and more. In 2018 is seems comedy, action and horror themes were the big winners.

Interestingly, two of the biggest titles, One Punch Man and My Hero Academia both get a lot of mileage from satirising traditional US superhero comics.
