DC Reveals DC Zoom Fall/Winter Line-Up"), has gone back to press for a second printing, which will bring the number of copies in print to 200,000, DC announced. Written by Shannon and Dean Hale (The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Real Friends, Princess in Black) with art by animator and illustrator Victoria Ying, Diana: Princess of the Amazons is right in the pocket for the fastest-growing segment of graphic novels: middle-grade with a female tilt.
The volume was the #2 graphic novel for Diamond U.S. in January, with around 3,700 copies sold (see "Top 500 Graphic Novels – January 2020"), and didn’t make the Top 20 Kids Graphic Novels for January in the book channel, according to BookScan (see "January 2020 NPD BookScan – Top 20 Kids Graphic Novels"). Perhaps some of those 200,000 copies are finding their way to school book fairs, for which sales do not appear in either chart. Regardless, it’s clear that there’s strong demand for this title, another hit from DC’s new push into the kids graphic novel market.
