Forget Tokyopop; Viz takes the lead: Remember on Monday when reported that Tokyopop has more trade paperbacks in print than any other comics publisher? Well, forget it. Now the retailer website says Viz actually holds the top spot, with a catalog of 1,030 titles. About "320 are 2004 releases, 225 of which have already shipped, putting the number of Viz graphic novel trade paperbacks available to retailers at approximately 900."

So, for those keeping track at home, that's Viz at No. 1 with about 900 titles in print, followed by Tokyopop with about 800, then DC with about 700, and Dark Horse with around 575.
