Hello Kitty The Smartest Kid On Earth

AAAAHHHH. AAAAAHHHHHH. Midori No Hibi Vol. 8 Ch. 1 has just gone up on SnoopyCool. Of course, I could go on yet again about how awesomely funny and cute and artistically accomplished this series is, but I'll let my friend Sky offer a testimonial this time: "so, omfg. Midori is like the best thing ever"

And that's all you need to know.

Don't forget that Tokyopop's Rising Stars of Manga Vol. 4 comes out this week. Amy Kim Ganter was one of the winners, people! Yes, that Amy Kim Ganter! Man, if Becky Cloonan ever got the urge to enter RSoM ... well, who knows -- Round 5 starts Dec. 1 and runs through Feb. 15, 2005, so we'll see. Ganbatte, comickers!

Why bother going to this blog? CWR covers manga better than I ever will!

Meanwhile, David @ PreCur totally digs Yu Watase's Alice 19th.

Via Thought Balloons and email: Publishers Weekly's top graphic novels of 2004. Tokyo Tribes makes the list, as does (interestingly enough) Hikaru No Go.

AoD kicks it ├╝ber old-school with Osamu Tezuka's 1948 title Lost World.

Haven't you always wanted to rewrite Jimmy Corrigan? Like, make it less depressing or whatever? Well, now you can!

Yes folks, the 10.5 million yen Hello Kitty (~US$100,000) has been sold to an Osaka resident. I'll let the ANN forums speak for me on this one:

"RADDEST HOOD ORNAMENT EVER.

pimp my ride hello kitty!!"

LOL- ohmigod, I luv Alice 19th. I have the entire series. Very cute guys, great one liners, etc. The maker is such an amazing artist.
