Tramps Like Us

Even though I've attended the gi-normous San Diego Comic Con for the past 7 years, I'm still a relative newbie when it comes to comic books. This year I decided to try something I'd never read before...manga. I am somewhat fascinated with Japanese culture and thought it'd be fun to give it a try. So, I ventured to the TokyoPop booth to see what caught my eye. I got some recommendations from experienced readers, but could only find later editions. I wanted to get some Volume Ones.

I picked up a few titles and found out it was a "buy 4, get 5th free" special. So, I picked up a Volume 2 of one of the books, Tramps Like Us.

My first manga read turned out to be successful. I really enjoyed the first two books in the Tramps Like Us series. I just ordered the next four that are available. I read that these books were so popular in Japan that a live-action tv show was spawned. It is an amusing and charming story of a woman who adopts a young man she finds on the street as a "pet." Here's a real review, if you want to know more.

While I wait for the next books to be delivered, I've started reading (from back to front, of course!) Legal Drug. I really want to read all of the books I bought at Comic Con, but it's going slowly due to interruptions such as Harry Potter. I also just picked up a Carl Sagan book at the library in preparation for my book club meeting next week.
