Comic Cuts: Charts w/e 12 December

Charts for week ending 12 December 2009. Unfortunately, I've not been able to find many figures this week but sales for these titles probably ranged from 15-31,000 or thereabouts.

Top 12 Annuals
1 (1) Beano Annual (approx. 31,000)
2 (3) Ben 10 Alien Force Annual (approx. 20,000)
3 (2) Hannah Montana Annual (approx. 20,000)
4 (4) The Official Doctor Who Annual (
5 (5) Top Gear Annual (
6 (9) Match Annual (
7 (-) Private Eye Annual (
8 (7) High School Musical Annual (
9 (11) Broons Annual (
10 (8) Peppa Pig: The Official Annual (
11 (6) Horrid Henry's Annual (
12 (10) WWE Annual (

It's worth noting that the Private Eye Annual is the 2009 annual, as they date by year of release rather than the traditional one year forward.

Does this take into account the latest Viz book Steve? Although not titled an "annual" they are still published annually for the Christmas market, and we always refer to it as the Viz Annual.

The list is based on the Top 50 sellers published by The Bookseller which doesn't exclude the Viz book. It simply hasn't hit the Top 50 sellers list.

That's not to say it isn't selling. The #50 book for the last week I have found some sales figures sold 12,500... so Viz could be bubbling along with 10,000 sales a week and never show up.
