Hellboy breaks into manga top 5 

Well, it looks like the movie has catapulted Hellboy's first GN into second place in the bookscan list, with five other volumes in the top 100! Good news to be sure. It'll be interesting to see how long it keeps this up. As I've said before, I think this title has good potential due to how few volumes there are and the consistancy of them. Compared to the plethora of Hulk GNs out for that movie, Hellboy has a couple of numbered volumes on display at almost any store carrying comics.

Kenshin seems to be doing amazingly well. Even Hellboy can't beat out Kenshin vol. 4, which is still in the lead. Fruits Basket 2 was in third place, Naruto 3 in fourth, and DNAngel 1 in fifth place.

Edit: Sorry, looks like I read that wrong. The article says that Fruits Basket was in second place, not third and that the other two manga round out the top five. So, I guess that means Hellboy #1 is actually in third place overall instead of second. Sorry about that...
