Posted by Milton Griepp on April 20, 2021 @ 2:43 am CT
Manga accounted for over 80% of the growth in graphic novel sales. We’ve been reporting on big increases in manga sales in our monthly BookScan graphic novel reports; March sales of manga in the Top 20 chart were triple the sales in March 2020 (see "Pro: March 2021 NPD BookScan – Top 20 Adult Graphic Novels with Actual Sales").
Kids book sales were up 32% overall in Q1, with Dog Man a big contributor to growth.
