Planetes -- I finished the first volume of this new Tokyopop series last night, and it's very good stuff. In the near-future, a small group of people who crave outer space are employed, essentially, as garbage collectors, getting dangerous debris out of orbit. There's lots of character development and the art is very good, playing down the more offputting Manga conventions and emphasizing a convincing sense of detail and, when needed, a genuine sense of majesty. Augie also recommends it in his column today. Along with Battle Royale, I'm now reading a grand total of two Manga series. If you have further recommendations based on my attraction to these two, drop me a line.
