Stormy adolescences

August 14, 2007

You would think one manga about teens facing mysterious, murderous parasites would be enough for a given publisher, but the more I read Alive, the more I realized there was plenty of room at Del Rey for both it and Parasyte.

And while it might not be one of CMX’s more newsworthy upcoming releases, I enjoyed The Key to the Kingdom a whole lot. (I might just be going through fantasy saga withdrawal, but I don’t think so.)

Anyway, I go into needless detail on both in this week’s Flipped.
