I've got a new Comixology column up, part one in a three-part series about my trip to Tokyo. With photos!
Also, for the first time, the Osamu Tezuka Cultural Award in Japan has resulted in a tie, and both winners are not only amazing manga, but available in English. Ooku, shonen-ai genius Fumi Yoshinaga's most ambitious yet sexy work to date, is published by Viz, and A Drifting Life, gekiga legend Yoshihiro Tatsumi's autobiographical story of the birth of the manga industry, is published by Drawn & Quarterly as the biggest damn one-volume manga you ever saw. If ever thou didst love the Overlooked Manga Festival, you need to read these two awesome mangas.
