The biggest surprise / most intriguing new manga license announcement at Comic-Con? It wasn't from any of the big guys: it was from Picturebox, who announced that they'll be publishing The Passion of Gengoroh Tagame, the first-ever collection (in English) of bara manga.

Bara manga is manga about men loving men, created for gay men. With its focus on manly, muscular men, bara manga has a distinct style compared with yaoi manga, which is boys love manga, usually written by/for female readers.

With Chip Kidd and Anne Ishii spearheading this effort, i know this book is already on my most anticipated list for 2013. see what the buzz is about here:

Once again, Zac Bertschy invited Ed Sizemore and I for another session of "Super Manga Pals" on Anime News Network's ANNCast!

Listen to us rant about what we're reading fr. Yen Press, Drawn & Quarterly, Digital Manga Inc., Fantagraphics Books Inc., JManga, & VizMedia, get frothy around the mouth about pirate manga apps on the iTunes Store, hear me get pissy about fans who are never, ever happy, what's new on Shonen Jump Alpha, and much, much more.
Deb Aoki, Ed Sizemore and Inebriated Batman reconvene and it's time for another installment of Super Manga Pals! We talk about the industry, what we've been reading and then take a ton of Twitter ques...

Here's the full list of manga we loved (and loathed) at this year's Best & Worst Manga panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2012! See our picks and read rants from Shaenon Garrity, Chris Butcher, Carlo Santos, Brigid Alverson & I about 40 new and upcoming releases.

6 hours to go, and Digital Manga needs to raise $2.5K to publish Triton by Tezuka, along with Unico and Atomcat. They've got some sweet thank you gifts like silkscreened posters and t-shirts to tempt you to dig a little deeper and give a little more, so why give it a go, why don't you?
We want to publish over 1,500 pages of manga for kids and teens by the great Osamu Tezuka, creator of Astro Boy and Buddha.

Poor Kodansha. With only one new license to announce at Comic-Con, they were stuck answering questions from a small group of cranky Sailor Moon fans. here's what happened:

Elegant, modern oasis in the middle of Kyoto -- excellent food, with utterly fresh ingredients and a mix of modern and traditional flavors. Thoughtful, gracious service and very reasonably priced. They have an English menu too, but also have a faithful local clientele. Will definitely return!
