Summer is nearly gone, kids and college students are going back to school, and Manga Village has more great reviews for you! Btw, how do you like the full color version of the banner? Isn’t it great? Wouldn’t you like something just as great for your blog/website? Then go check out Kuriosity, Lissa Patillo’s blog and help you with her college costs!
This week Charles Tan starts us out with his take on Gantz Volume 1 from Dark Horse. I’ve got the penultimate volume of The Cain Saga, with Godchild Volume 7 from Viz. John Thomas gives us a history lesson not just in manga, but in Japanese history and culture with Barefoot Gen Volume 1 from Last Gasp. Dan Polley gets his geek on with I, Otaku Volume 1 from Seven Seas Entertainment.
Over in the columns, we have out weekly picks of new releases this week. It’s a small but good week, with the smaller pubs able to get into the spotlight for a few minutes. Over at Good Comics For Kids, I’ve also got my All Ages Comics List up, with some picks for boys. Also check out the article by Eva Volin, school librarian, and see what she has to say about manga for the Tween set.
