MICHELLE: I am looking forward to bicycle boys and creepy planets of doom, but I was so totally charmed by the first volume of With a Dog AND a Cat, Every Day is Fun, that I must make the second volume my pick of the week.
KATE: I never say no to pet manga, but the idea of Junji Ito in space is just too irresistible for me, so my pick is Remina. (May it erase the memory of Ito’s adaptation of No Longer Human…)
SEAN: Baccano! fans have been waiting for this novel more than any other since the series was first licensed. The second part of Huey Laforet’s tragic backstory, Baccano! 1710: Crack Flag is my pick this week.
ASH: I’m with Kate this week in picking Remina! I’m curious to see Junji Ito tackle a work that leans at least a little (if not a lot) more towards science fiction than some of his other horror manga.
