Mission: Yozakura Family, Vol. 1

Serialized on Shonen Jump, Gondaira’s English-language print debut is a wacky and exciting shonen adventure that will appeal to young adults looking for found-family plotlines. Fans of Tatsuya Endo’s Spy x Family and manga with a wild variety of ragtag characters will feel right at home.

Gauld’s (Department of Mind-Blowing Theories) literary comic strips, originally published in The Guardian, are sharp and range in their humor.

Run on Your New Legs, Vol. 1

Midori (Kuchikake Ryu no Keiyakusha) has created a sports-themed manga that will really entice fans of similar titles like Haikyu!!, where naturally talented protagonists learn a sport from the bottom up. This manga will especially appeal to readers looking for a sports manga with realist emotions (with downs as well as ups), whose protagonist recovers from a major trauma and navigates life with disability.

Seven Deaths of an Empire

Older teens and adults will enjoy the novel’s political intrigue and struggle to survive, which are reminiscent of George R. R. Martin’s “Game of Thrones” or a slightly less fantastical version of Jim Butcher’s “Codex Alera” series.
