Tokyo These Days, Vol. 1

Matsumoto (Cats of the Louvre) offers a provocative meditation on the struggle to maintain artistic integrity while creating art for mass-market consumption.

Black Paradox

Ito (The Liminal Zone) combines macabre horror and absurd humor in his most successfully disturbing long-form work in recent years.

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.

Look Back

A beautiful, dream-like story about art-making, friendship, and growing up, best appreciated by manga fans with a basic sense of the visual and cultural cues of the genre.

The Liminal Zone

While this latest collection never quite manages to evoke the berserk emotional intensity of his best work, Ito’s knack for crafting psychologically complex tales that veer between creeping dread and surrealistic body horror remains unparalleled.

Alice in Borderland, Vol. 1

Aso proves a master of suspense and visual storytelling, especially over the course of a sequence depicting a game of tag through a sprawling apartment complex, complicated by the presence of a hulking, gun-toting serial killer wearing a terrifying horse mask. This first volume, which is the inspiration for a hit Netflix series, should have readers clamoring for future installments.

Deadpool: Samurai, Vol. 1

A unique, thoroughly enjoyable blend of action-adventure and cutting satire.

Deserter: Junji Ito Story Collection

Another exemplary volume from the internationally renowned master storyteller.


Though it lacks the intense, visceral thrill of his best work, the latest manga from prolific creator Ito (Lovesickness) is still a chillingly unpredictable tale of cosmic horror that builds to an apocalyptic, yet strangely hopeful ending.
