With so much manga (Japanese comics) out there, what's really worth reading? An opinionated group of bloggers, journalists, editors, retailers, and hardcore manga readers hash it out and rant and rave (okay, mostly rant) about the best new manga of the past year, the underappreciated gems you may have missed, and the manga they love to hate. This year's all-star cast: Brigid Alverson (MangaBlog.net, Publishers Weekly), Christopher Butcher (director, Toronto Comic Arts Festival and manager, The Beguiling), Deb Aoki (MangaComicsManga.com), and a few surprise guests.
