Yeah, I know, I did it again. I missed a week. And I’m not going to try to make any excuses. I’m just going to go straight into the reviews. The first week of September started off with the newest member of our Manga Village Commune, Katherine Farmar. She’s bringing the BL with her review of Lover’s Flat from DMP/June. Charles Tan is ready for the return of Monday Night Football with Eyeshield 21 Volume 6 from Viz. I check out High School Debut Volume 3 from Viz. John Thomas gets Real Volume 1 from Viz. Dan Polley gets his ninja on with Naruto Volume 30 from Viz. Then check out our picks for the week. They might be a Slam Dunk, or they might not…
This week picks up with Katherine Farmar works some magic with the DMP/June title Spell. Charles Tan doesn’t run from Cat-Eyed Boy Volume 1 from Viz, nor does Dan Polley from I, Otaku Volume 2 from Seven Seas Entertainment. But we lose John Thomas to MPD-Psycho Volume 6 from Dark Horse.
Over in our columns, we’ve got two you have to check out! First is our usual picks of the week. See if you can be as “tactful” as John was about it. Then check out our Manga of the Month for August, with a new banner by Lissa Pattillo! We’ve spiffed things up a bit, and tightened the format. Leave a comment and tell us what you think!
Meanwhile, over at Good Comics for Kids, I’ve got the new All Ages Comics list for 9/4/08 and 9/10/08 up for your perusal. Sabrina Fritz also has a review up there for Bizenghast: The Novel (yes, it’s okay to read something with more text than pictures every once in a while).
