It's no secret that One Piece has been an exceptional manga series run up to date. In Japan, the 2008 elected "most interesting manga's" publisher, Shueisha, will be breaking another publishing record.
 
 One Piece #61
 One Piece #61
Eiichiro Oda's pirate manga originally held the record of printing the most Shueisha manga copies with 3.4 million copies of One Piece's volume 60 in it's first printing. Selling 2,094,123 copies in it's first four days of sales last November, and on January 30, 2,803,817 copies were sold. Now, Shueisha has broken it's own record by printing 3.8 million copies of One Piece volume 61 this last Friday.  
  
Of course, One Piece has not beaten the larger scale Shueisha's franchise, Dragon Ball. It sold 350 million copies worldwide from different publishers, but not to worry, Once Piece is not all that behind, which has sold over 200 million copies.

Alright who wrote that headline? The headline on the front page is missing a decimal separator on the thousands mark. It reads as "2,094123 copies in it's first four day" when it should be "2,094,123 copies in it's first four day." Next let's talk about punctuation. "...in it's first four day," is wrong and should be "by it's fourth day" or "in it's four day span" or even "in four days" would be fine. 
 
I'm critiquing grammar and punctuation. The user well known for making erroneous spelling errors...lovely. 
 
I kid because I love by the way.

Makes me almost want to read One Piece...nah, who's got the time?  I'll stick to the anime. 
 
That surpasses Spiderman #1 from Todd McFarlane which sold 2.5 million copies.   The Guinness Book of World Records claims that X-Men #1 by Jim Lee from the 1990's is the highest selling comic book, with 8.1 million copies sold.

Uhhh, this is sort of a duplicate news report of what I wrote about last month. It was also on the front page. Yeah, information was added about Volume 61 sales breaking records again, but that image is from Volume 60.

"Its," with no apostrophe, is correct.  "It's" is a contraction for "it is," "its" is a possessive pronoun like "his" or "hers."
