June 30, 2012 7:25 pm Yeah, I really wish it would have said Vol. 1.
March 22, 2012 1:58 pm @TreeoftheStoneAge I've got to say that I am in the same boat. Most of the time the standard manga art style does nothing for me.
March 22, 2012 12:53 pm I've been wanting to get started on 20th Century Boys. The idea of 18 volumes is extremely daunting, based on cost mostly, at $10(?) a pop it adds up pretty quickly. I work in a comic shop also and you're right, there is definitely a huge invisible wall that "normal comic" readers often just can't seem get over when it comes to manga. I have a lot of people who come in and never look at the manga section, and then people who will go straight there and only there.

December 2, 2011 6:09 pm I wasn't trying to bash overweight people by any stretch. I was trying to say that when people walk into a comic shop they immediately look for Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons. I apologize if I offended anyone, it was definitely not my intent.
