fumi yoshinaga’s moon and sandals has made The Young Adult Library Services Association’s list of “great graphic novels for teens”!!! YALSA is a part of the American Library Association, and has published a list of recommended graphic novels for teens, and a large majority of the titles are either manga or manhwa.
see ANN’s coverage here.
how did moon and sandals end up on this list? who choses? what is the selection process? and are they aware that this comic contains GAY? this i just cannot believe.
not only have comics suddenly become more respectable in the eyes of “the institution”, but the uncontrollable popularity of anime/manga/manhwa as well.
i am literally in shock right now.
