Scott Pilgrim, Blackest Night dominate New York Times

The New York Times spotlights the debut of author Janet Evanovich's first graphic novel Troublemaker atop its graphic books bestseller list. The title's performance probably should be expected, though, considering the popularity of her novels.

What's more interesting is the domination of the hardcover and paperback charts by two series: DC Comics' Black Night collections, and the entire run of Oni Press' Scott Pilgrim.

Buoyed by the release last week of the final volume of Bryan Lee O'Malley's acclaimed series, and anticipation for the Aug. 13 debut of Edgar Wright's film adaptation, the Scott Pilgrim books claimed the top six spots on the paperback list, with Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour debuting at No. 1.

Meanwhile, on the hardcover list, five Blackest Night collections fell into place behind Evanovich's novel: Blackest Night: Black Lantern Corps, Vols. 1 and 2; Blackest Night; Blackest Night: Green Lantern; and Blackest Night: Green Lantern Corps.
