Hello all! I’m still recovering from my trip (and madly trying to catch up with all the reviews on my plate) but I wanted to point you toward something over at Manga Recon that was a special bit of fun for me. A while back I had an idea for a roundtable discussion, and while I was on the trip, Michelle asked me to start it up! My question was…
Some mangaka are stronger artists than writers, or vice versa, and most have pretty distinctive styles. If you could combine one mangaka’s writing with another mangaka’s art for a one-time collaboration, who would you put together and why?
Behold! Manga Recon Roundtable: Dream Teams, in which we discuss our favorite made-up mangaka pairings. I had a lot of fun with this, and I also put together all the silly images for the post. Enjoy! :D
One last note, it’s Danielle Leigh’s one-year anniversary over at Comics Should Be Good! Go wish her well!

is it cheating if i say Takeshi Obata and Yumi Hotta? :D I know that collaboration will never happen again, but I just think it was pretty much perfect. <3

Haha, no I don’t think that’s cheating at all! I almost said that myself in the roundtable discussion! I completely agree.
