Welcome to another Manhwa Monday!
As an update to last week’s discussion of March releases, let’s talk a bit further about NETCOMICS. As Michelle Smith pointed out this week on Twitter, all of NETCOMICS’ scheduled chapter updates for March are for its current manhwa series, including The Adventures of Young Det, Full House, Small-Minded Schoolgirls, and Please, Please Me. New chapters for each of these series will be debuting each week.
It’s worth noting that each of these series (mainly for adult women) made an appearance on our Manhwa Monday special edition, Favorite Manhwa of 2009, being recommended by at least one of that feature’s contributors.
Also in the realm of recommendations, the Library Journal came out with a list of “27 Graphic Novels for Women’s History Month,” including Kim Dong Hwa’s Color of… series (First Second). Also, David Welsh continues his Shojo-Sunjeong Alphabet series, now on letter “T” which includes both The Tarot Cafe (Tokyopop) and Time and Again (Yen Press).
Here at Manga Bookshelf, I read my first manhwa from Canadian publisher Udon Entertainment–volume one of girls’ horror comic Reading Club. More to come! 13th Boy (Yen Press) yields a couple of reviews this week, from yulianka at Wordcandy Bookshelf (Vol. 1) and Lissa Pattillo at Kuriousity (Vol. 3).
MIKETINFOIL at booghosts ltd. takes a look at volume one of Shaman Warrior (Dark Horse). Danica Davidson reviews manhwa for a couple of different sites this week, volume three of Sarasah (Yen Press) at iFMagazine and volume one of One Fine Day (Yen Press) at the Graphic Novel Reporter.
That’s all for this week!
Is there something I’ve missed? Leave your manhwa-related links in comments!

“Favorite Manhwa of 1009”
I like this typo, I hope you keep it. ‘1009’ appeals better to my aesthetic sense than ‘2009’.

Ha! Oh, sadly I can’t keep it. But I really appreciate you pointing it out!
