Following the release of the Watchmen trailer, the Watchmen trade by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons shot to the top of the charts, prompting DC to go back to press with 900,000 new copies flooding the market to meet the demand of readers.  So, it’s no suprise to see Watchmen top the list of 100 trade paperbacks sold through Diamond Comic Distributors for July 2008.

Take the jump for the complete rundown.  Heck, you might even find a trade or two you haven’t read, that you can add to your reading list.
