Gate 7 Volume 1 TP, $10.99  **Weekly Pick**

KODANSHA COMICS
Gon Volume 2 GN (Kodansha Edition), $10.99

Tenjo Tenge Volume 3 GN, $17.99

The Picks:

Alex’s Pick: It’s a short list this week, but there are some goodies here – Gate 7, Vol. 1 comes to mind right away, but we also can’t neglect Afterschool Charisma, which is a really solid sci-fi thriller. I’m happy to get volumes of both of theses series this week.

Lori’s Pick: Haven’t read a lot of CLAMP, but their new title, Gate 7 does sound interesting. If nothing else, it has beautiful art which should make it worth the price of admission. And I can’t resist a good supernatural series.
