Deb Aoki revealed the results of two more reader polls over at About.Com this week.
In the Best New Seinen Manga category, Hiroya Oku’s ultra-violent Gantz (Dark Horse) took top honors, followed by Astral Project (CMX), written by marginal (also known as Garon [Old Boy] Tsuchiya) and illustrated by Syuji Takeya.
In the somewhat awkwardly titled Best New Classic or Reissued Manga category (though I can’t think of a more elegant way of phrasing it), Osamu Tezuka’s Black Jack (Vertical) comes out on top of a strong pack of contenders. Second place went to the VizBig editions of Takehiko Inoue’s Vagabond.
Update: I somehow missed the results from the Best New Josei Manga Poll, which are also posted. First place went to Tomoko Noguchi’s Object of Desire (LuvLuv/Aurora), with Kishi Torajiros’s Maka-Maka (Kitty Media/Media Blasters) claiming second.
