9 Best Selling Comic Series Of All Time‏

4. One Piece

Sales: Over 345 million I think we've got enough time for another trip to the Land of the Rising Sun, and this time for a series that has an acknowledged debt to Dragon Ball: crazy pirate adventure epic One Piece. In fact, creator Eiichiro Oda seems to have taken Dragon Ball's popularity and/or length as a challenge, since the series €“ which began in 1997, and is still ongoing €“ currently consists of 73 volumes. Plus, well, it is the fourth biggest selling comic in the world. Like Toriyama's crowning achievement, One Piece has been helped by an anime adaptation €“ including several special episodes that have crossed over with Dragon Ball €“ and its popularity seems to have no end, much like the series itself. The 60th volume was the fastest-selling manga of all time on release, a record surpassed only by the 61th and then 66th collected editions.
