An artist friend of mine once said that Daisuke Igarashi's drawing ability is so good he must have sold his soul to the devil. Igarashi is best known in the United States for his series "Children of the Sea," which received an ambitious film adaptation you can watch on Netflix. But I've always believed that his short stories are superior. Witches--the first collection of his shorter work to be made available in English--is my most anticipated manga release of the year. If you have any interest in comics, or simply enjoy having the secrets of the world revealed to you by a devoted environmentalist who draws like he's channeling some great power, I recommend this book.
