The New York Times will no longer publish best seller lists for graphic novels or manga. The graphic novel and manga best sellers lists will be absent from the paper as soon as its February 5 edition.
The move comes along with the dissolution of several other of the Times's best seller lists, including its mass market paperback list. The New York Times will publish its final list of best-selling graphic novels in its January 29 edition.
When reached for comment by Newsarama, the New York Times had this to say: "Please be advised that Best Sellers List will be focusing on its core lists. These include the lists in the February 5th edition."
