We detail even more magnificent manga this week on Read This Now!
GANTZ, VOL. 1
Written and Drawn by HIROYA OKU
I like science-fiction, so when somebody told me that I should a really cool sci-fi manga called Gantz, I took the chance. Full of action, intrigue, guns, violence, aliens, pretty girls, and the awkwardness of being a Japanese teenager trying to cope with whether or not he’s actually dead, Gantz was surprisingly right up my alley. If you’ve ever wondered what happens to you after you die, this book has the answer. You get transported to a room with an orb from another world that demands you hunt down aliens on Earth. Sounds about right.
So we hear you’re looking for something to read. That’s great because we’ve got a ton of recommendations on what comics you should be checking out. Every week we’ll pick out one gem from the longboxes or trade shelves that you absolutely cannot miss. We’re talking mainstream, indie, full storylines, single issues, and beyond. If there’s a comic we enjoy that we think you will too, you’ll hear all about it on Read This Now!
