Some of my friends are making a comic anthology and have a Kickstarter project for it - if you like small-batch local organic free trade Chicago comics, maybe check it out!  (I'm not in it, but a lot of cool artists are!)

Two totally great manga I've liked recently:
- The Girl From the Other Side - adorable and gorgeous!  It lives up to its eye-catching cover!
- Cells at Work! - way more hilarious and compelling than you'd expect a story of anthropomorphized human cells to be!
