February 2006 Top 100 Graphic Novel Sales List

Newsarama.com also posted the Top 100 Graphic Novels Sales List for February, 2006. The Revolution looks at this rather than a pure manga sales list in order to see how manga sales are doing in comparison with trade paperback and graphic novel sales of the domestic companies like Marvel and DC. The highest rated manga is Trigun Maximum at #16 by Darkhorse. Viz’s highest rated title is Rurouni Kenshin at #17.

Darkhorse placed 1 manga title in the Top 25. Viz placed two manga titles in the Top 25. The second being Bleach at #25.

Tokyo Pop placed 6 titles in the Top 50. Viz placed 3 titles in the Top 50. Darkhorse placed 3 manga titles in the Top 50. Random House placed 1 manga title in the Top 50. Image place 1 manga title in the Top 50.

Tokyo Pop placed 11 manga titles in the Top 75. Viz placed 5 manga titles in the Top 75. Darkhorse placed 3 manga titles in the Top 75. Random House placed 2 manga titles in the Top 75. Dr. Masters placed 1 manga title in the Top 75.

Tokyo Pop placed 14 manga titles in the Top 100. Viz placed 9 manga titles in the Top 100. Darkhorse placed 5 manga titles in the Top 100. Random House placed 3 manga titles in the Top 100. Image placed 2 manga titles in the Top 100. Dr. Masters placed 1 manga title in the Top 100.

February, 2006 was a big month for Tokyo Pop who dominated the other companies on the sales list. Viz was the next best company, but some of their heavy hitter titles were not released in February which probably explains why Tokyo Pop owned Viz in February.
