Now that we're several years into digital comics being a going concern, the usual response to hearing that a publisher has joined up with Comixology tends to be something along the lines of, "Wait, they weren't on there already?" This week, though, we got one that's definitely worth talking about. Yen Press just made its debut on the digital comics platform, bringing almost 200 manga titles, including Fullmetal Alchemist, the Kingdom Hearts manga, and even the American manga adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight novels.
But what really matters here is this: Yotsuba&! is now on Comixology.
If you're like me, then every now and then, you'll look wistfully over at your bookshelf and wonder when, when the next volume of Kiyohiko Azuma's Yotsuba&! will finally be released. It is, after all, one of the most charming comics of all time, the story of a wide-eyed young girl who moves to a new town and manages to find adventure around every corner with her neighbors and her dad --- and, y'know, occasionally pretends to be an assassin sent to kill them with a water pistol.

That’s why we’re stepping in with a public service, bringing you comics-related items sure to make the season brighter, whether you’re browsing for a gift or just looking for something to drop hints about so that you don’t get stuck with a random assortment of back issues again.
If you're looking for pretty much anyone who enjoys comics as a medium, then you might want to just go ahead and get them the best possible comic: Kiyohiko Azuma's Yotsuba&!
TV: Louie CK can't keep his hand off volumes of Yotsuba&! in a recent episode of Louie. We don't know why, but we approve!
Manga: Although he's decided on an ending, Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto told Japan's Otona Fami magazine that he can't foretell how much longer the series will continue, meaning fans should probably brace their shelves for plenty more volumes.
For people not in the know, the manga "Yotsuba&!" -- the story of a young girl and her endlessly patient, endlessly suffering adoptive father after their move into a new town-- is probably the most hilarious and joyful comic on the stands. Yo...
