  Manga Stack of Intimidation In The News
The Manga Stack of Intimidation is unstoppable.  Unable to be constrained, it has broken free of this blog and found its way into other columns, such as Matt Maxwell's Full Bleed [not a permalink] and Tony Isabella's Tony's Tips (scroll down to the "More Mailbox" section).  Please report any other sightings of the Manga Stack of Intimidation to the proper authorities.

Even if their columns didn't have such great pictures, I'd still recommend Matt's and Tony's pieces.  Matt discusses some of the more serious problems plaguing the floppy format.  (I'd like to note that the serials in Shonen Jump and other manga anthologies satisfy Matt's request for actual episodic storytelling:  Each chapter is good about developing the storyline instead of just marking time til the next issue.)  And Tony has some sage advice for both creators and reviewers regarding negative reviews:  Let it go already.
