This is something new for me. the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly has a list of top selling Graphic Novels and Comics. It has nothing to do with Diamond or Wizard Entertainment. It seems like they got their list from Midtown Comics in NYC. That store has a great location (40th street ...I think) so it's a short walk from the EW offices.
My question is: Entertainment Weekly has a lot of readers and they when they report on something they can affect it's popularity. Why do they trust Midtown Comics to decide the best sellers? Did they call the Manager and ask for a report? No offense to Midtown, but couldn't EW call St. Marks comics located in the Village or some other place? Am I missing something here? I guess that's more than one question.
Congrats to the books on the list. I just wonder about the accuracy of this list.
