August 14, 2006 Fruits Basket, Naruto, Halo and Confirmation on a “DVD Effect”

imageThe comics business news and analysis site looks at graphic novel bookstore sales and comes away with a variety of noteworthy points. The hot performance of Marvel's Halo graphic novels interests me because I swore I heard once and I can't remember where that Marvel wasn't the first place that property was going to end up -- which means somewhere someone is gnashing their teeth. As a non-canonical, non-universe strong performer, Halo greatly enhances Marvel's overall bookstore profile. In other news: the latest Fruits Basket dominates at a 2 to 1 ratio, V For Vendetta received a significant boost related to the DVD release of its movie version, and Naruto remains the manga volume version of 1980s X-Men comic books.
