Spare artwork, beautiful period costumes, and plenty of behind-the-scenes drama make "Ooku" an entertaining and thought-provoking read. Also, Tokyopop just released the first volume of Seekers, which is based on another Erin Hunter series about bears. “The Seekers novels are early in conception for Erin Hunter properties [with only] four books, so we couldn't really do side stories,” says Diaz-Przybyl, explaining they instead chose to do the Seekers comics as prequels, showing “the early life of the bear cubs.” Marvel has also undertaken several projects based on prose works, which range from straight adaptations and prequels to original stories.

This is the first time I read a historical lord of the ring like art manhwa in full color. If I convince other people to like it, then maybe I won’t feel so uncomfortable!” I appreciate what the writer is trying to do – reach out to other reluctant readers. (Because that’s what you are in this case, kids: reluctant readers.

Singh’s Guild Hunter series, I’d be the first in line to buy. I’m always a bit surprised at how pervasive “Graphic Novels” over “Comics” as a norm when trying to “adult up” the medium. Amanda Stegall-Armour, “The Only Thing Graphic Is Your Mind: Reconstructing the Reference Librarian’s View of the Genre,” in Graphic Novels and Comics in Libraries and Archives, ed.
