Over at About.com, Deb Aoki has been posting a series of “Best of” readers polls, where anyone can vote for their favorite new manga (in quite a number of categories) released in 2009. The latest of these has special interest for me: Best New Korean Manhwa.
I had a really rough time choosing my favorite from that group (I ended up going with Byun Byung-Jun’s collection of moody short manhwa, Mijeong, though now 13th Boy, Time and Again, and even U Don’t Know Me are looking at me as a traitor), though I’m anxious now to get my hands on a copy of Udon’s Reading Club–the only one of the bunch I don’t have in my possession. I was a bit disappointed not to see any of NETCOMICS’ new ladies’ titles on the list, such as Small-Minded Schoolgirls and Please, Please Me, though perhaps Deb only included manhwa available in print.
So fans of manhwa, head over and place your votes! Voting closes on January 15, 2010, at midnight PT.
