Osamu Tezuka's Buddha manga. I love it, though later in the series it's getting more preachy than I'd like.

Right now I'm about 2 1/2 inches into Azumanga Daioh Omnibus Edition.

I can say now that I prefer the anime to the manga for preserving the original content. Don't get me wrong, I'm loving every page of it; I just wish they hadn't gone and tried to americanize stuff, especially the lines from Osaka's stand-up routines. Like where "That's not grains of truth, that's the truth about grains" Laughing got turned into "That's not trivia, it's just plain trivial."  Confused Question

I finally got around to the Ghost in the Shell manga. Not quite what I expected, but I liked it a lot. I liked some of the comical moments and the insane amount of author's notes.

Now that Monster is on Syfy and I've gotten deep into Master Keaton, I'm continuing my thread and reading Pluto.

Yotzuba&!

This kid is just too weird and cute at the same time. I can't get enough of it.

I guess I'm the odd one out here for not reading Manga.

I'm am currently reading through the bibliography of Edgar Allan Poe, and I must say his complete mastery of rhythm and meter in poetry is truly spectacular, and I find his short stories to be marvellously singular in their creativity and depth.
