|SEAN: Not a lot to say. I tend to pick Dorohedoro every time a new volume comes out, because I love its art, its characters, its humor, its worldbuilding, and its plot. This love has only gotten stronger as the series progresses, so Vol. 8 is my pick this week.|
MELINDA: I’m going to take a real leap this week and put my money behind GEN Manga’s Good-bye Geist. Though the premise sounds a little sketchy (sexual assault and animal cruelty are not topics I’m a fan of), a quick flip through suggests that these aspects may be overstated, and I’ve long wanted to pay more attention to releases from GEN. So in the spirit of adventure, I’m jumping in! I’ll let you know how it goes.
MICHELLE: Brave woman! I suppose I’m jumping in a little with my pick of Kaoru Mori: Anything & Something from Yen Press. I reluctantly admit that I’ve only managed to read a couple volumes of Emma so far, and none of A Bride’s Story, so this short story collection is a low-commitment way to get in and experience more of Mori’s storytelling skills. Look for it in next week’s Off the Shelf!
ANNA: I will go for Vagabond VizBig volume 11, because Vagabond is one of my favorite series and being able to read three volumes at once is always a welcome treat.
Readers, what looks good to you this week?
