According to this tweet agent Rebecca Sherman who has access to early lists, no doubt.
As you may recall, last week controversy erupted when it was revealed the Times was dropping their three graphic novels bestseller lists. Book review editor Pamela Paul assured everyone that GNs would be included in the regular lists when appropriate – something I pointed out would be very likely in the case of March’s boosted sales over the last few weeks – and it turns out that in this case she was right.
While the number of graphic novels that can add the prestige of being a Times bsetseller will be greatly lessened going forward, it ooks like legitimate sales success will be recognized.
