Tokhopop's Princess Ai, written by rocker/actress Courtney Love (see 'Courtney Love and Tokyopop Collaborate on Princess Ai'), topped the Bookscan graphic novel bestseller list in bookstores for the week ending July 25th.  InuYasha, Trigun Maximum, Hellsing, and Yu Gi Oh round out the top five. 


All of the top ten graphic novels in bookstores were manga; the top non-manga title was Spider-Man 2, at #13.  In fact there wre only a handful of non-manga titles in the top 50, primarily Spider-Man titles and strip reprints.
