Releases of the Week: Barbara is back!

8:00 PM on 09.11.2012 // Brad Rice

Back in January, DMP successfully licensed Barbara. Now, it's hitting shelves, and it's a title you must pick up. I am personally very happy that enough people have shown interest in the varied works of Osamu Tezuka to allow something like Barbara to make it to print. We have a long way to go before we catch up with the likes of other countries, but this is a step in the right direction.

Other titles worth picking up this week are the complete box set of Spice and Wolf for those who haven't yet touched the series, as well as House of Five Leaves and Sailor Moon volumes. There's plenty of good stuff available for all -- even the tentacle fans! You'll want to check out The Curse M.

As always, let us know what you're picking up in the comments below!
