Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Nearly three dozen stories from around the world share space in this year’s mostly full-color collection. The top three manga jiman (six-page stories), several installments of Joanna Zhou’s page-long funny-animal strip Carlos and Sakura, sci-fi, punk, shojo, yaoi, and yuri each and all receive well-selected representation. Standouts include autobiographical work by Asia Alfasi, a warm tale of cat and human bonding by Shari Chankhamma, and a ghost story by Chi-Tan. Each piece is introduced by the editor, with brief remarks from the story’s creator(s) and a listing of his or her other works and Web sites. Not only is the array splendid, but its arrangement creates a cohesive whole as well. For libraries, the one word of caution is the fragility of the perfect binding. Fans and experimenting readers alike will appreciate this anthology, which has staying power on account of the breadth of styles and subjects it embraces, one far wider than most libraries’ present manga holdings affords. --Francisca Goldsmith


"An energetic and varied display of cartooning from creators whose work ranges from promising to polished."

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had read and reviewed a previous volume of Manga and was not very impressed with that volume. However, this fantastic Manga comic strip (The Mammoth book of Best New Manga(3)) book not only held my interest, but turned out to be a great read. It may be because many of the topics in this text were more interesting and meaningful to me. This Manga book also had more color drawings as well. This is a massive 448 page book with numerous very unique stories. It has something for everyone who is into the Japanese Manga comic books.

Some of the many stories in this volume include the following: Kitsune Tales, Unity Rising, Pilot, My Robot, The Bizarre Adventures of Gilbert & Sullivan, Cat's Paw (One of my favorites), Manga Jiman, tale of the Una-Don Eater, Ed & Ecchi, Me and my food, Carolos & Sakura, Ground Zero-The Woge, July Tenth, Snow Fall, Friction, Between, Attack of the Peach Blossom, New York Stories, Hero Z and many other fascinating stories.

In conclusion, if you are into the Manga comic book series you may want to check out this volume.

Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Haiku Moments: How to read, write and enjoy haiku)
