It’s a double dose of Manga Village reviews this week, since i was so busy with SDCC (and recovering from) that I forgot to post them last week! SDCC was fun, except for the crowds, which don’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Some things are still worth fighting the crowds for though.
On to reviews! Dan Polley gets things started with Kasumi Volume 1 from Del Rey. John Thomas has some Me and the Devil Blues Volume 1also from Del Rey, and then runs into a Tokyo Zombie from Last Gasp. Charles Tan checks out Puri Puri Volume 5 from DR Masters and runs for Eyeshield 21 Volume 5 from Viz. I finally review Nana Volume 10 and 11 from Viz.
We still managed to get our picks in as well, for manga coming out 7/23/08 and 7/30/08. Not that there was much to pick from. I guess publishers knew no one would want to spend any money before SDCC, and would have none left after. And if you think the manga lists are paltry, wait until you see the All Ages Comcs lists for 7/23/08 and 7/30/08. I still managed to find some picks, but man, was it hard! Check them out at Good Comics for Kids.
