SEAN: If you like tiny weeks where you can take a break from reading all the manga in the world, this is the week for you.
ASH: No, no, Sean. It’s not a week for taking a break, it’s a week for catching up!
MELINDA: In fact, from the looks of things, that’s my task for the week as well!
SEAN: Dark Horse is re-releasing the Astro Boy volumes in giant 700-page omnibuses, not only larger in size and page count (this is 700 pages), but with added extras and gewgaws. The first is out next week (if you get it from Diamond).
MICHELLE: The original volume three (possibly included in this omnibus) has the story that inspired Naoki Urasawa’s Pluto. It’s really good!
SEAN: Seven Seas has a 2nd volume of quiet country life gag manga Non Non Biyori.
And a 3rd volume of action/thriller/comedy vampire manga Servamp.
Viz has a 4th volume of Master Keaton, which I am very fond of despite some problematic areas.
MICHELLE: And speaking of Urasawa! I am determined to get caught up on this title.
MELINDA: Hey, I should buy this so that I no longer have any excuse not to return the little volume Michelle loaned me! :D
ASH: I’ve been collecting since I’m an Urasawa completist, but I need to get caught up, too!
ANNA: Me too! I have the third volume stashed somewhere.
SEAN: And an 8th volume of Terra Formars, where there is far less fondness.
Anything here catch your eye?
