It’s a slow week in the manhwa blogosphere, with only three reviews for me to pass along. First, at Good Comics for Kids, Lori Henderson reviews volume one of One Fine Day (Yen Press). At Manga Life, Charles Webb gives us a first-timer’s look at volume nine of Black God (Yen Press). Lastly, at TangognaT, Anna talks about the first four volumes of Goong (Yen Press).
With such a small bounty to share this week, it seems like a good time to check out the (nearly) equally short list of this year’s new manhwa series. Though we’ve seen quite a few new volumes of continuing series this year, new series have been scarce–just four by my count as of the end of June.
Yen Press is this year’s overachiever so far, with two (count ‘em, two) new series since January began, One Fine Day and Laon. Long-absent DramaQueen returns (briefly) to life with the release of volume one of The Summit. Finally, NETCOMICS weighs in with There’s Something About Sunyool, of which there are several volumes available online, though June’s scheduled print release has yet to materialize.
So, Manhwa Monday readers… what’s your pick for best of the year so far?
We’ll check in with the results next week, when we’ll also take a look at this 2010’s continuing series. Until then!
