• Comics Academy--Jake West

The TOP 11 New Manga to Read and Order in November

Welcome back to Comic Book Yeti! I am your host, Jake West from Comics Academy.

Missed last week's list? Here're the basics:

  • This is a list of currently pre-orderable titles you can find in Previews either online or from their monthly catalog. Ask a person at your local comics shop if you're interested in reserving titles in the future.

  • If you want to order any of these titles, you can use the link in each entry for that issue and its previous issues and volumes. You can also find most, if not all, of these titles for sale online or digitally, but ask your local comics shop if you're looking for any previous hardcopies.

  • The "New Readers" descriptions were taken directly from their first issue or trade paperback, so there are no story spoilers. The "Returning Readers" descriptions were taken from the current issue for people who have already read up to the current issues and want to stay up-to-date.

  • Full Disclosure: Each entry on the list was decided by my own personal tastes.

  • If you find this list in the far future, don’t despair! You can still most likely find all of these titles in trade paperbacks or digitally. And they won’t stop being great reads – that’s for sure.

  • I also post photos of my weekly comics haul on Instagram and Twitter (@ComicsAcademyX). If you are interested in checking out more content from Comics Academy including video reviews, live comic creator interviews, comic community events and more, then click here!

  • We will also be doing weekly lists for the top Marvel and DC Comics to order, as well as the best Kickstarters to back, and even new indie comics every month. There’s a list for any comics reader!
