New manga, license rescue, Sabrina sneak peeks

Here’s my look at the past week’s new manga at MTV Geek.

And here’s a manga-Sabrina hat trick: A preview of vol. 2 of the collected edition of Tania Del Rio’s manga-style comic (now rendered in beautiful black and white), an exclusive peek at the cover of vol. 3, and the five things you need to know to get started with this series.

The Manga Bookshelf bloggers discuss this week’s new manga and their Pick of the Week.

Lissa Pattillo notes that SuBLime is bringing back Crimson Spell and also that RightStuf is warning purchasers that Bond of Dream, Bond of Love may be seized by Canadian customs.

M. Alice LeGrow, creator of Bizenghast, has a new graphic novel out, and Crunchyroll gets a peek.

News from Japan: The Asahi Shimbun has a detailed rundown on the Osamu Tezuka Cultural Awards, including interviews with the judges and a look at the winners and competitors in each category. And the Kodansha Awards have also been announced; Makoto Raiku’s Animal Land won the prize for Best Children’s Manga. We had some hints of this and now it’s official: Gantz will come to an end after the next two chapters.

Reviews: Ash Brown looks back on a week in manga at Experiments in Manga. The Manga Bookshelf bloggers keep it concise in their latest set of Bookshelf Briefs.
