April showers

Newsarama has the Direct Market graphic novel figures for the month of April, and 32 manga titles made the top 100. That’s about 10 more than usual. More on the list later, but for now, here are the manga entries (and a couple of interesting digest-sized successes from Marvel) after the cut.
