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..

8. Batman, Inc. Vol 1

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!
