Not long ago, we posted a call for contributors here at Manga Bookshelf. We got a lot of terrific submissions, and a number of new columnists have come on board, including two that debuted this week!
In her new monthly column, Comic Conversion, Angela Eastman will be comparing prose novels to their sequential art adaptations. She began this week with James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet’s Witch & Wizard, adapted by Svetlana Chmakova for Yen Press.
And moving away from (strictly) manga, Paul Beasi will be reviewing both Japanese games and non-Japanese games with a Japanese theme in his new column, Bits & Blips: Manga Bookshelf Edition. He launched his column this week with a review of the maid-centric deck building game Tanto Cuore.
Finally, I’d like to thank guest blogger Sara K. for her recent write-up of Sooyeon Won’s Mary Stayed Out All Night. This is Sara’s second contribution to the site, and we’re happy to have her back!
We have more new contributors joining us soon, so stay tuned!
