Mangaman by Barry Lyga  126 pp.

This mash-up of Manga and American comic book styles centers on a manga style character who is transported to a comic book land and falls in love with a girl character. The military wants this androgynous "Mangaman" sent back to his own comic land and the bleed through between comic styles to be permanently sealed. But the love of the two creates a difficulty. The amusing take on typical features of manga art are a high point in the story.
