I’ve always been of the opinion that there’s a great comic book out there for everyone. I love making recommendations to folks – especially new readers – and helping them grow a love for one of America’s unique forms of literature.

So, let me tell you what to read this week.

Really, I’m just interested in this comic because of the cover.

Nothing was more genius than putting bad boy Wolverine in charge of the new mutant school, The Jean Grey School for Higher Learning. This series is the heart of what it means to be an X-Man: learning about yourself and dealing with the drama of being around volatile youngsters.

Chiyuki is a young woman with a serious heart condition. Toya is a vampire who refuses to bond with a human for the rest of his life. Millennium Snow is a paranormal romance about the two and their strange relationship. Check out my review of the three volumes!

From the pages of Weekly Shonen Jump comes a new series about fighting vampires. When Yuichiro finds out the orphanage he lives in is a holding cell for potential vampire meals. Be sure to check out Manga Monday at Talking Comics on June 9th for a more in-depth look at this series!


That’s it for this week’s pull list! If you have any recommendations for comic fans (and non-fans) out there, share them in the comments section!
