KATE: There is SO MUCH GOOD MANGA coming out this week, y’all, I don’t know where to begin! VIZ is unveiling two new series with grown-up appeal—Steel of the Celestial Shadow and Tokyo These Days—and bringing the long-running Golden Kamuy to a bloody close. Another strong contender for Pick of the Week is King in Limbo, a new series from Ai Tanaka, the creator of Apple Children of Aeon. The cover isn’t really doing it for me—one of the characters looks like Jason Statham’s second cousin—but the premise is intriguing and the early buzz is strong.
SEAN: It wasn’t on my radar at all, but man, that cover to Steel of the Celestial Shadow is amazing enough that I’m going to check it out. That one is my pick.
MICHELLE: I’m going to throw my support behind King in Limbo. I’m totally a fan of josei romance, but *non*-romance josei is enough of a rarity that it makes me very excited we’re getting some!
ANNA: I join with Michelle on being intrigued by King in Limbo!
ASH: I’m totally on board for everything above! It’s definitely going to be a good week for reading manga, but not such a good week for my wallet…
