Criteria

The search is filtered by popularity by sales, for the words “Graphic Novels”.

It is not taken from the Bestsellers listing for Comics & Graphic Novels.

Not only does a search for “graphic novels” generate a lisiting of every sort of comic book, but also includes illustrated childrens’ books, and sometimes porn, (back in evidence), and tie-in box-sets.

The Top 10 includes original graphic novels, or original graphic short-story anthologies. The story must complete in one volume.

It accurately shows the sales position in the listing at the time of the search.

The Top 10 does not include adaptations, film tie-ins, spin offs or part works or the superhero genre.

Do you think we have let something off the list that should be included? 

Is something on the list that is not an original graphic novel or anthology?
