Justin’s Pick: Over the objections of my daughter (who would prefer that I pick Sailor Moon every day of the week and twice on Sundays), I’m going with High School of the Dead Color Omnibus HC. The series itself has certainly interested me, even if it didn’t grab my attention enough to make it my pick of the week. But this omnibus edition is in full color, and as well-crafted a manga collection (paper quality, dust jacket, etc.) as you are likely to find.
John’s Pick: Though I am usually a little averse to main characters named Ash, there is something interesting looking about The Innocent from Yen Press.
Lori’s Pick: While Sailor Moon is probably on the mind’s of most females this week, I have to join John in showing an interest in The Innocent this week. Even though I read the chapters in Yen Plus, reading the whole story at once may change my feelings for the story as a whole, good or bad. Hardly anyone calls him Ash though.
