Scholastic sells a half-million SpongeBob Cine-Manga

This is impressive ... and a little disturbing (if only because it's SpongeBob): Tokyopop tells that Scholastic Books has sold nearly a half-million units of SpongeBob SquarePants: Bikini Bottom's Most Wanted Cine-Manga. Yes, a half-million copies:

"Previously [June 18] ICv2 had reported that Scholastic had moved 250,000 copies of the SpongeBob Cine-Manga, but the doubling of that already impressive number indicates the immense potential of the Scholastic Book Club, and the appeal of the Spongebob property to the school-age demographic."
