Lost in Transition: On ‘Ranma 1/2′ and Owning Your Identity


Hi, I’m Charlotte Finn. I’m a lifelong comics fan and last year, I admitted to myself that I'm transgender. In this occasional series, I’m going to reassess comics that feature people like me, or close to being like me, and look them over with a fresh set of eyes. Are they good? Are they bad? Are they somehow both, at the same time?

Ranma 1/2 by Rumiko Takahashi is a good manga and deserves its status as a landmark of the medium. It's also not really a transgender manga.

She Is The One! Best ‘Sailor Moon’ Fan Art Ever


I’ve done a number of these “Best Art Ever” galleries now, and I can say, without hesitation, that this one was the hardest to put together by far. By far. Not because it was difficult scrounging up enough cool art to fill a gallery, but because there was enough amazing art to fill a hundred galleries! I swear, there are people on DeviantArt who draw nothing but Sailor Moon. People who have page after page of fantastic fanart dedicated to ol’ Meatball Head and her friends and enemies. It’s ludicrous how many great takes and redesigns and re-imaginings there are out there, and I know there were probably so, so, so many that I never even saw.

Best Cosplay Ever (This Week): She-Hulk, Pacific Rim, Moon Knight, Diablo III and More


Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as and the Superhero Costuming Forum.

Teenage Love, Teenage Death: Should You Be Reading ‘Orange’?


Ichigo Takano's Orange takes divergent timelines, suicidal ideation, coming of age, and the struggles to communicate oneself cleanly in even the most dedicated friendship systems, and wraps them all up seamlessly in a sweet, compassionate teenage romance. It sounds impossible, offensive, even farcical, but that's why you need to read it. It has to be experienced to be believed. Orange ends its run this month, so get it while it's still hot.

Buy This Book: Shimizu and Shimoguchi’s ‘Ultraman’ Vol. 1

Ultraman vol. 1, Viz Manga

If you're looking to get into Ultraman, Eiji Tsubaraya's long-running, world-famous tokusatsu franchise, now seems like a pretty good time. There's Ultraman X, of course, which just became the first ever toku series to be broadcast simultaneously worldwide via Crunchyroll, but for those of us who prefer our superheroes on the printed page rather than live action, there's something else, too: A new manga from Eiichi Shimizu and Tomohiro Shimoguchi.

Billed in bold type right there on the cover as 'THE BEGINNING OF A NEW AGE', the first volume dropped digitally this week from Viz Media, and while there are parts that read like a pretty standards superhero reboot, it's well worth checking out --- if only so that you can get to the awesome ending.
