To keep things consistent, we’re officially transitioning to Sean’s Manga the Week of lists as our source for Pick of the Week, in place of the Midtown Comics list we’ve traditionally used. That said… maybe we picked the wrong week?
SEAN: Um… Cage of Eden? I guess? Whatever… you all can choose among the Yen stuff if you like, given what else there is… Zzzzzzzzzzzzz…
MICHELLE: I suppose I’ll throw in for Kitchen Princess. I’ve never read it, but I know David liked it, and that’s good enough for me!
MELINDA: Well, given the choices, I guess I’ll take advantage of the description of this as a “transition” and go for one of the Yen titles that’s turning up at Midtown this week (but appeared on Sean’s list last week). And that title would be BTOOOM!, a sort of adventure/survivalist story by Junya Inoue. I read it for Off the Shelf a couple of weeks ago, and found it to be great (if unoriginal) fun.
Readers, what looks good to you this week?
