Comic Cuts: Bestselling British collections

Back on July 14th I posted a Top 20 for the best-selling British graphic novels (i.e. collections of stories of UK origin rather than British editions of American GNs). So, one month later, here's the chart positions as of August 16th.
1. Charley's War: 2 June-1 August 1916. Titan (ISBN 978-1840236279), 26 Nov 2004.
2. Alice in Sunderland by Bryan Talbot. Jonathan Cape (ISBN 978-0224080767), 5 Apr 2007.
3. Mammoth Book of Best Crime Comics, ed. Paul Gravett. Robinson (ISBN 978-1845297107), 26 Jun 2008.
4. Charley's War: 1 August-17 October 1916. Titan (ISBN 978-1840239294), 21 Oct 2005.
5. Commando: True Brit. The toughest 12 Commando comic books ever!. Carlton Books (ISBN 978-1844421213), 16 Oct 2006.
6. Judge Dredd: The Complete Case Files 03. Rebellion/2000AD (ISBN 1904265871), Apr 2006.
7. The Complete Alan Moore Future Shocks. Rebellion/2000AD (ISBN 190426588X), May 2006.
8. Commando: The Dirty Dozen. The best 12 Commando comic books ever!. Carlton Books (ISBN 978-1844423071), 7 Nov 2005.
9. Judge Dredd: The Complete Case Files 01. Rebellion/2000AD (ISBN 1904265790), Dec 2005.
10. Rogue Trooper: The Future of War. Rebellion/2000AD (ISBN 978-1905437399), 14 Jun 2007)
Only 10 of the top 100 at Amazon relate to British comics so it's a bit of a short list this time round. However, I should add that Amazon update their charts hourly so there can be dramatic changes over the course of a day.
