Los Angeles, June 18, 1999 -- It's official, the public loves Sailor Moon! According to Diamond Comic Distributors, Inc. Sailor Moon #3 ranks number 1 in May's "Graphic Novel and Trade Paperback" category -- outranking such classics as Batman, Spawn, and The Flash.

The engaging story of Bunny (an average girl who hates school and loves sleeping, boys, and videogames) who discovers that she is really Champion of Justice Sailor Moon, has captured the hearts and imaginations of children across the world. Now, Sailor Moon is ready to use her Crystal Powers to entrance America. Filled with non-stop action, adorable illustrations, and the classic story of good vs. evil, it is no wonder that children across the globe have fallen in love with our reluctant super hero.
