Now here’s something you don’t see every day: a piece on recommended comics for manga lovers. It’s usually the other way around, so it’s nice to see Katherine Dacey-Tsuei take a different approach:

“My guess is that there are other seasoned manga readers out there who are curious about that long wall of floppies on the opposite side of the store, but share my aversion to spandex. So from time to time, I’ll post a run-down of recent releases that might tickle the fancy of all those InuYasha, Monster, Crying Freeman, and—dare I say it?—Fruits Basket fans who’ve wondered, “Would I like Mouse Guard?” (The correct answer, by the way, is “Yes!”)

Dacey-Tsuei starts off with Fables: 1001 Nights of Snowfall (Vertigo) and Daughters of the Dragon: Samurai Bullets (Marvel).

In other news, chicks dig Sandman.

In other news of crappy magazines admiring Marvel, Maxim thinks Civil War is worthy of the designation “Most Awesome.”
