Teens love it. Parents hate it. Librarians are confused by it; and patrons are demanding it. Libraries have begun purchasing both manga and anime, particularly for their teen collections. But the sheer number of titles available can be overwhelming, not to mention the diversity and quirky cultural conventions. In order to build a collection, it is important to understand the media and its cultural nuances. Many librarians have been left adrift, struggling to understand this unique medium while trying to meet patron demands as well as protests. This book gives the novice background information necessary to feel confident in selecting, working with, and advocating for manga and anime collections; and it offers more experienced librarians some fresh insights and ideas for programming and collections. In 2003 the manga (Japanese comics) market was the fastest growing area of pop culture, with 75-100% growth to an estimated market size of $100 million retail. The growth has continued with a 40-50% sales increase in bookstores in recent years. Teens especially love this highly visual, emotionally charged and action-packed media imported from Japan, and its sister media, anime (Japanese animation); and libraries have begun purchasing both. Chock full of checklists and sidebars highlighting key points, this book includes: a brief history of anime and manga in Japan and in the West; a guide to visual styles and cues; a discussion of common themes and genres unique to manga and anime; their intended audiences; cultural differences in format and content; multicultural trends that manga and anime readers embrace and represent; and programming and event ideas. It also includes genre breakdowns and annotated lists of recommended titles, with a focus on the best titles in print and readily available, particularly those appropriate to preteen and teen readers. Classic and benchmark titles are also mentioned as appropriate. A glossary and a list of “frequently asked questions” complete the volume.

The Art of Jamie Hernandez (Hardbound)

Price: PhP800.00

Condition: Hardbound very good condition, originally unread overstock copy, heavy book, 8.0″x12.0″.

In 1981 three Mexican-American brothers self-published their first comic book, Love and Rockets, and “changed American cartooning forever” according to Publishers Weekly. Over twenty-five years later it is still being published to critical and commercial success.

Jaime Hernandez’s moving stories chronicle the lives of some of the most memorable and fully formed characters the comics form has ever seen. His female protagonists, masterfully delineated with humor, candor, and breathtaking realism, come to life within California’s Mexican-American culture and punk milieu.

In April 2006 Hernandez began serializing his work with the New York Times Magazine—all of which will be collected here in full color. The notoriously private artist has opened his archives for the first time, revealing never-before-seen sketches, childhood drawings, and unpublished work, alongside his most famous Love and Rockets material.

Kurt Busiek’s Astro City Vol. 4: The Tarnished Angel
By Busiek, Anderson, Ross, Comicraft, introduction by Frank Miller

Price: PhP350.00

Condition: Very good condition, minor shelf wear

“A very good gangster story. And a very, very good superhero story.”- Frank Miller

It’s only Kiefer Square.. a run-down eyesore of tenements and lost hopes, the home of petty criminals, down-and-outers, hired muscle and worse. And nobody cares- not the cops, not the city, and certainly not the super-heroes that soar above Astro City, making the world safe for everyone else.

So when someone starts killing the small-time super-villains of Kiefer square, it falls to one man to do something about it. Steeljack, a.k.a. the Steel-Jacketed Man. Just out of prison, he wants nothing more than a straight job, a place to sleep and three square meals a day.

He’s not smart. He’s not brave. And he doesn’t want the job. But he has something the people of Kiefer Square desperately need.

He’s hard to kill. He’ll have to be.

John Constantine, Hellblazer (Set of 4)

Includes:

John Constantine, Hellblazer: Original Sins by Jamie Delano
John Constantine, Hellblazer: Dangerous Habits by Garth Ennis
John Constantine, Hellblazer: Fear and Loathing by Garth Ennis
John Constantine, Hellblazer: Tainted Love by Garth Ennis

Price: PhP800.00

Condition: very good to good+ used/read with plastic cover (taped). Still very solid reading copies.

Original Sins collections several early issues of John Constantine’s first break-away from Swamp Thing into his own monthly title. It is here that John obtains his demon’s blood from Nergal.

If you want to see where much of the inspiration for the movie came from, Dangerous Habits is the book to read. Centered around Constantine’s bout with lung cancer, this is a far darker take on the situation than you will see portrayed in film.

Fear and Loathing gives us more Gabriel than the brief glimpse we get in Dangerous Habits. Gabriel’s story here is also a lot less viewing-audience-friendly than it was in the movie.

In Tainted Love John must face a vampire that has stalked the Constantine family for generations and the return of an ex-girlfriend, Kit.

“Monday burn Millay, Wednesday Whitman, Friday Faulkner, burn ’em to ashes, then burn the ashes.”

For Guy Montag, a career fireman for whom kerosene is perfume, this is not just an official slogan. It is a mantra, a duty, a way of life in a tightly monitored world where thinking is dangerous and books are forbidden.

In 1953, Ray Bradbury envisioned one of the world’s most unforgettable dystopian futures, and in Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, the artist Tim Hamilton translates this frightening modern masterpiece into a gorgeously imagined graphic novel. As could only occur with Bradbury’s full cooperation in this authorized adaptation, Hamilton has created a striking work of art that uniquely captures Montag’s awakening to the evil of government-controlled thought and the inestimable value of philosophy, theology, and literature.
Including an original foreword by Ray Bradbury and fully depicting the brilliance and force of his canonic and beloved masterwork, Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 is an exceptional, haunting work of graphic literature.
