Best Comic Books

As a tie-in to the upcoming Comic Con next week in San Diego, the San Francisco Chronicle offers a list of “The Best in Comic Books.”

Among the listings is Asterios Polyp, which has been rising on Amazon (it’s now at #117, which may be a record for a graphic novel).

UPDATE: Thanks to Brock Martin for reminding me that Watchmen went much higher in Amazon sales rankings (in fact, it is STILL higher than Asterios Polyp. A simple check of Amazon’s Bestsellers in Graphic Novels would have revealed that). So, let’s amend the statement to this being “a record for a non-movie-related graphic novel.”

    I think Watchmen was higher than #117 on the Amazon list at some point before the movie released.
