This will work a lot like our “Best Comics of the Decade” list, but with a few notable tweaks.
- IPs must be brand new to the Japanese and/or American manga markets between the years of 2010-19. This means even though One Piece, Mobile Suit Gundam, and Ultraman all have great new books out, they’re disqualified for being continuing series.
- The list will be split into two categories: Blockbusters, each of which is so successful as to be a nearly mandatory pick, and Personal Selections, which are smaller books that may have slipped under the radar. This way, everyone gets represented.
- I’m not going to ask Dave to proof against Japanese titles, so we’ll all just have to accept the anglicized versions.
