Starfinder Core Rulebook Cover

Diamond Book Distributors has published its top 25 best-selling graphic novels from the publishers they distribute, based on sales data collected by Bookscan.

In August, the Starfinder Core Rulebook from Paizo was the number one selling book, a science fiction RPG, springing from the Pathfinder game, which of course has its own related comics line from Dynamite Entertainment.

Saga by Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples dominates the Top 25, but The Walking Dead Volume 27: The Whisperer War, by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard, also shambles its way into last month’s best seller chart,
