MANGA: What I’ve been Reading Recently!

Been reading LOADS of manga again, so I have some recommendations for anyone interested:

GOODNIGHT PUNPUN https://anilist.co/manga/34632/Goodnight-Punpun/
Not only is this my Fav Manga its also probably one of my fav comics of all time, though I am still about 40 chapters from the end so that may change :smile:

Inio Asano has become my obsession recently, so check out some of his other stuff too:

and particularly: https://anilist.co/manga/47353/A-Girl-on-the-Shore/ (NSFW at all!)

GOLDEN KAMUY https://anilist.co/manga/86559/Golden-Kamuy/
I really love this, and I am not usually a fan of historical stuff at all. Great art, great sense of humour, lots of cooking! The anime is great too.

I AM A HERO https://anilist.co/manga/44440/I-Am-a-Hero/
Pretty sure everyone knows this one but – Manga zombies and much high strangeness. Great art. Meanders a bit though – well, more than normal for manga. His new one UNDER NINJA https://anilist.co/manga/103890/Under-Ninja/ seems to have stopped after a few chapters, that or it’s not being translated.

***


PLUTO https://anilist.co/manga/30745/Pluto/
A reworking of Astro Boy from the perspective of a secondary character in the original series. This is really good. The story is well done, art is great.

 

***


20th CENTURY BOYS https://anilist.co/manga/30003/20th-Century-Boys/
Same artist as Pluto, not too far into this (2 vols or so) but good art and a good story, has that sort of Stephen King thing going on where a group of adults are trying to sort out and remember stuff from their childhood.

***

VAGABOND https://anilist.co/manga/30656/Vagabond/
A retelling of Miyamoto Musashi story with great art.

***


THE WAY OF THE HOUSEHUSBAND https://anilist.co/manga/101233/The-Way-of-the-Househusband/
Ex-yakuza now a very dedicated house husband – quite funny but not sure how long the joke could last. Still, lovely art.

Anyway, just thought I’d mention them, you got any recommendations for me?

Tommie Kelly is an Artist and Writer, but not always in that order. He has published a number of Comics, some of which are about music, though they're all mostly about magic in some way. Tommie believes creating art is the biggest magickal act there is and is firmly in agreement with Alan Moore that Art=Magic.

He also created the Forty Servants.
