B&N Bestsellers in Science Fiction & Fantasy: August 2019

This month in SFF, comics, and manga bestseller news at Barnes & Noble: our recent Book Haul promotion vaulted some recent hardcovers back into the top 10, excitement for the upcoming Netflix series The Witcher is evident on the paperback lists, and Good Omens and The Boys offer yet more proof that a streaming adaptation is a great way to move backlist. Meanwhile, in manga land, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure managed to muscle its way onto a list dominated (again) by the My Hero Academia franchise.
