Congratulations to Ahavah for winning a copy of Fumi Yoshinaga’s All My Darling Daughters (Viz)! I asked entrants to name their favorite comic mom (by which I mean mothers or mother figures from comic books, graphic novels or comic strips as opposed to moms that are laugh riots, though they could also be that). Here’s Ahavah’s choice:
“My favorite manga mom is Kyoko Honda from Fruits Basket, but not just because of the sweet-as-sacharine way she brought up Tohru before her untimely death…
“Kyoko Honda embodies a great message for girls: Tough chicks can be devoted mothers and never lose their strength. If you’re lucky enough to find one as your mentor, hold on to them, because they know the worst of life’s crapile and can help you figure out how to turn it all to your advantage.”
Other noteworthy moms mentioned by entrants include:
Thanks to everyone who entered!
