Milestones: Smile Makes 100th Chart Week; Papercutz' Thea Stilton Vol. 3 Hits One Million Sales Mark

Here are a couple of milestones I think worth noting, even as I don't have a ton to say in additional commentary -- I think the success bound up in each one is pretty obvious.

image* Gary Tyrrell reminds us that Raina Telgemeier's Smile has reached its 100th week on the appropriate bestseller list. While there are books with zombies that have settled in for a longer time, I think Telgemeier's continued sales success with that one, when combined with the fact that it's a non-genre work friendly to younger readers, makes it one of the key comics of the last half-decade. Congratulations to Telgemeier.

* Meanwhile, NBM sent out a press release earlier today that the third Thea Stilton volume, part of the Geronimo Stilton franchise, has gone over 1M in sales for publishing arm Papercutz. That doesn't happen a whole lot.
