Hot Off the Press!

Highlights from the past two weeks, with commentary from the NFNT gang:

oddduck-cov-300rgb

Odd Duck (First Second, 9781596435575)

Robin9781596435575: I was so delighted to see Cecil Castellucci’s new graphic novel for kids launch at TCAF, and I’m so glad now everyone else can share it’s adorable oddity.

SAturn-Apartments-7-cover

Saturn Apartments Volume 7 (Viz, 9781421552682)

Jenny: Saturn Apartments is quiet, thoughtful, and subtly gripping, keeping you completely sucked into what’s happening on (or between) the pages without the help of any frenetic battle action or chase scenes.

Sunny Volume 1 (Viz, 9781421555256)

Jenny: One of the reasons I wish I could have gone to TCAF this year was to get more exposure to Taiyo Matsumoto’s work, so I am already on hold for the first volume of Sunny.

Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar – Part 1

Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar – Part 2 (Funimation)

Allen: The Tenchi train don’t stop for no one!
