Yesterday we ran an article about the top 5 new anime you should check out. When we published it I wasn't sure if people would care or not, but it turns out a lot of you enjoy anime. Me too! But I'm really more into reading manga. Always have been. I figured a massive amount of you guys and girls would be in the same boat so I thought, why don't we recommend each other some good stuff to read?
But I don't want to limit this to just manga — I recognise that's a bit niche. Let's bring western comics into the mix as well!
Anyway, in no particular order, here are some of my recommendations...
Vagabond: A retelling of Musashi. Probably has the best art I've ever seen in a manga. By Takehiko Inoue, creator of Slam Dunk.
Pluto: From the creator of 20th Century Boys and Monster. It reboots Astro Boy as a noirse style detective thriller. Dazzling, smart storytelling.
Ping Pong: One of the most sophisticated sports manga I've ever read. Really subverts a lot of the cliches of sports drama. And it's about Ping Pong!
Alright, I'll leave it there since I'm really looking for your recommendations! Drop them in the comments below!
