Top 10 comic books of 2012

You know what’s funny?  The amount of comics borrowed in 2012 had a greater increase than anything else in the junior line.  It could have POSSIBLY been just because I bought lots of them however..

Top 10 comics of 2012 All Ages

10. Clone wars: The wind raiders of the Taloraan
9. Amulet: Book one
8. Geronimo Stilton: who stole the Mona Lisa
7. Asterix and the golden sickle
6. Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn
5. Geronimo Stilton: Dinosaurs in action
4. Asterix omnibus #10
3. Bart Simpson Annual 2012
2. Tintin: Red Rackhams Treasure
1. Asterix Omnibus #3

SO! In the top 10 all ages comics there are 3 Asterix, 2 Tintin and 2 Geronimo Stilton.  In fact a great chunk of the top 40 was Asterix and Tintin.

Top 10 comics of 2012 – young adult

10.Yu-gi-oh!GX vol 1
9. Big beefy book of Bart Simpson
8. Batman, Inc. Vol 1
7. Star Wars omnibus Vol 2 – at war with the empire
6. Spider-man Season One
5. Amazing Spider-man: Spider-island
4. Yu-gi-oh! 5d’s
3. Avengers Disassembled
2. Star Wars: Darth Vader and the lost command
1. Avengers: The childrens crusade

Wow. Suprised that the only manga on that list is Yu-gi-oh.  Apart from that another interesting book on there is Batman Inc cos I , cough, helped work on it.  That’s PROBABLY why it was the 8’th most borrowed comic book of the year. Spidey had a couple of showings at #5 and 6 so I’m happy with that.  Although surprised that #9 is under YA though.

So what is the Top 5 if you put them together? Glad you asked!
