Buffy & Serenity make up 8 of the top 10 Dark Horse graphic novels in 2010 via Bookscan data.
The Beat goes into Brian Hibbs' look into Bookscan data of graphic novels. This means graphic novels that sold just through book stores and no comic book stores are included in this data. What the Beat does different from Hibbs is the Beat compiled the data by publisher. So you can see how successful Joss' comics are to Dark Horse in book stores.
Unfortunately, the volume numbers for Buffy are cut off so you have to match up writer's names and in some cases it's still hard to tell when Joss is the writer. Either way, it shows that the early volumes of Buffy continue to sell and later volumes are still quite successful in book stores.
