The shape of lists to come?

by John Jackson Miller

Continuing with the topic below of Nielsen's Bookscan and its sales charts, an interesting post just up about its sister Soundscan top-seller lists -- and how they set it up so that backlist items wouldn't creep back up into the top-seller lists.

As this is a case of them publishing sales rankings in actual practice, we might wonder whether they would bring a similar approach to comics, separating frontlist from backlist. On the Diamond charts, the monthly sales for the Golden Oldies do make the list with everything else, when they earn the spots.
