BLANK CANVAS SO CALLED ARTISTS JOURNEY GN #1

(W) AKIKO HIGASHIMURA (A) AKIKO HIGASHIMURA (CA) AKIKO HIGASHIMURA

The award-winning autobiographical manga Kakukaku Shikajika by AKIKO HIGASHIMURA, the creator of Princess Jellyfish, about her high school dream to become a comic book creator! High schooler Akiko has big plans to become a popular mangaka before she even graduates, but she needs to get much better at drawing if she ever wants to reach her goal. Looking for an easy fix, she signs up for an art class, thinking all her problems will soon be solved. She's in for a surprise: her new instructor is a sword-wielding taskmaster who doesn't care about manga one bit. But maybe this unconventional art teacher is just what she needs to realize her dreams!

TOKYO TARAREBA GIRLS GN #6

(W) AKIKO HIGASHIMURA (A) AKIKO HIGASHIMURA (CA) AKIKO HIGASHIMURA

"I spent all my time wondering 'What if?' Then one day I woke up and I was 33." Rinko has hustled her whole life, but one day she wakes up and finds herself a writer of a cheap online soap opera with only two friends (with whom she goes drinking most nights). In a booze-fueled delusion, she swears to get married by the time the Tokyo Olympics roll around in 2020, but it's not going to be a straight line, and there won't be any fairy tale endings!
