Manga Man by Bary Lyga and Colleen Doran (Illustrator), 126 pages, read by Paige, on 02/19/2012

Coming from a person who is not into Manga at all, but I do like the occasional graphic novel this was actually really good; the crossover was pretty fabulous. Manga man is Ryoko…he’s been sucked into ‘our world’, but still retains the style of manga (speed lines, shockingly expressive faces, etc…). Naturally he’s an outcast, but meets a girl, Marissa; fun, silliness, and even some action ensue.

Great graphic book for teens on up and for graphic novel, comic book, or manga lovers alike. Also, the artwork…pretty awesome, but quite black and white.
