To help educators and librarians to be informed about what their students and patrons are buying from their local comic shops, we present the Top 25 Graphic Novels titles for November. Each month, Diamond Comic Distributors announces its best-selling graphic novels and trade paperbacks based on Total Unit Sales Invoiced to comic book specialty shops.
Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang's Paper Girls Volume 2 was November's best-selling graphic novel.
Marvel Comics had six titles in the top ten, led by Marvel: The Hip-Hop Covers Volume 1 at #2, Star Wars: Darth Vader Volume 4: End of Games at #4, The Unbelievable Gwenpool Volume 1: Believe It at #5, The Vision Volume 2: Little Better Than Beast at #8, Moon Knight Volume 1: Lunatic at #9, and Deadpool V Gambit: V Is For Vs at #10.
DC Entertainment rounded out the top ten with three titles — DC Super Hero Girls Volume 4: End of Games at #3, Neil Gaiman and J.H. Williams III's Sandman Overture at #6, and DC Universe Rebirth Deluxe Edition at #7.

How does Diamond calculate the charts? It all starts at the comic book shop.
Data for Diamond’s sales charts — which includes the monthly market shares and all top product charts — are compiled by Diamond Comic Distributors from sales made to thousands of comic book specialty shops located in North America and around the world. Additional sales made to online merchants and other specialty stores may be included as well.
Unit and dollar market shares are calculated based upon orders for comic books, graphic novels, and magazines invoiced and shipped to Diamond customers during any given month, which comprises pre-orders, advance reorders, and reorders, minus any copies that are received back from a title marked as returnable. Please note that comics marked with an asterisk (*) have had their reported quantities reduced due to retailer returnability, and thus may rank lower on the charts than their actual sales would reflect.
