2019 is here and it’s about time we started a new Comics thread, following @GoldenJoel’s suggestion in the 2018 thread!
Same as the 2018 thread, what are people reading in the new year? What comics, authors, and artists have you been keeping up with? What new and amazing things are you excited about in the coming year? Basically any discussion about the comics and manga and other forms of sequential art we’re hot on in the year 2019 is welcome here!
I’ll start with something that came out last year, but I received as a birthday gift just just last week: Mami by Diigii Daguna:
The comic follows Haiyan Neito, a detective caught in a cat-and-mouse game with a master thief named Goyong. It’s a little reductive, but think of the Zenigata/Lupin III dynamic but from the cops perspective and also more openly flirtatious and queer. Its a fun little story and the art is very expressive and compliments the lightness and humor of the plot well.
