September Switch, new manga, and more

Digital Manga’s September Switch promotion is still going on for a bit longer; at Panel Patter, Rob McMonigal takes a closer look at what it entails—basically, sign up with eManga and show you have bought an e-book somewhere else, and they will give you a free volume of manga. As eManga now offers DRM-free downloads, this may be something for yaoi fans in particular to explore.

The Manga Bookshelf team discusses their Pick of the Week.

News from Japan: Writer Tow Ubukata (Fafner, Mardock Scramble, Le Chevalier d’Eon) is teaming up with artist Rururu Kondoh to launch a new series, Gargoyle, in the November issue of Young King Ours. The series is set at the end of the shogunate and Ubukata describes it as “Shinsengumi in the style of X-Men.”

Reviews: The Manga Bookshelf team look over some recent releases in their latest set of Bookshelf Briefs. Ash Brown looks at My Week in Manga at Experiments in Manga.
