Hot Off the Press!

This week’s highlights, with commentary from the NFNT gang:

KingdomHeartsChain

Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories (Yen Press, 9780316255622)

Jennifer W: I’m confused by the Kingdom Hearts series – they seem to go in and out of print and have different titles. Are there multiple series? The ones I have are quite popular.

KitchenPrincess4

Kitchen Princess Omnibus Volume 4 (Kodansha, 9781612620657)

Jennifer W: I’ve been buying the Kitchen Princess omnibuses and they haven’t fallen apart yet, although they are circulating quite briskly which is good.

MORIARTY_DELUXE_EDITION_HC

Moriarty: Deluxe Edition HC (Image Comics, 9781607066859)

Michael: I did a review of Moriarty a while back. It’s an okay read. Not amazing, but not awful.

SaintSeiya

Saint Seiya Movies – 1&2, 3&4 (Eastern Star)

Michael: While I can’t speak from personal experience, I’ve heard that the Saint Seiya movies are amusing, if not particularly high quality.

SupFamAdventures1

Superman Family Adventures Volume 1 (DC Comics, 9781401240509)

Jennifer W: I’m looking forward to the Superman Family Adventures. I desperately want more superhero comics for younger kids, but I’m not sure they’ll like something that appears to be quite cutesy.

WolverineXMen5

Wolverine and the X-Men Volume 5 (Marvel Comics, 9780785165774)

Michael: Wolverine and the X-Men is a consistently good read, and this volume is no exception.
