Eiichiro Oda’s ONE PIECE continues to be the fastest selling comic book of all times, with the new Vol. 63 selling at a record breaking clip:
Eiichiro Oda’s “One Piece” manga continues its strong sales record with the latest volume 63 passing the 2 million sales mark just within 4 days of its release. This amazing result outshine the performance by Vol 60 & Vol 61 which only managed to pass the 2 million mark after 1 week.
A previous volume of ONE PIECE, #60, set another record by selling 3 million copies in an 8-day period.
Although a bit of a non-starter in the US — perhaps due to the less-than-awesome anime translation, and themes and characters who are a little, ahem, “vivider” than the US kids market is used to, ONE PIECE is probably the best selling comic ever worldwide.
