Pood is sort of like if there were still newspapers, and they still ran comics, and those comics were actually interesting and cool.
A Single Match
by Oji Suzuki
Drawn & Quarterly's record with manga collections has been outstanding, and this is another fine addition. Postwar alternative manga mixes here with surrealist humor.
Reid Fleming: World's Toughest Milkman Volume 1
by David Boswell
If you like irreverent, counterculture comics like Milk & Cheese, The Tick or even Flaming Carrot, you really need to check out the Reid Fleming - it's an underground classic.
War Is Boring
by David Axe / Matt Bors
It's war journalism in comics form.
