New manga, Harlequin online, and Kagome's uniform

Brad Rice and David Welsh check out this week’s new releases, which are heavy on the shoujo, apparently, and Tangognat looks at the month ahead.

Deb Aoki takes a look at the Harlequin manga that Digital will be publishing online.

Publishers Weekly has posted its Best Books of 2009 list and both Pluto and A Drifting Life make the “comics” list.

Cathy shows off her collection at it can’t all be about manga.

InuYasha creator Rumiko Takahashi blogs about Kagome’s uniform at The Rumic World.

Neither of these is manga, but they are both sort of interesting for other reasons: I interviewed Mark Waid of Boom Studios for PWCW, and at Robot 6 my Unbound column takes a look at dead webcomics.

Reviews: Ed Sizemore reviews Hayao Miyazaki’s Starting Point: 1979-1996, a book of writings by and interviews with the director, at Comics Worth Reading.
