Asian Invasion Roundup 

Steve Bunche has some good reviews up on the Pulse as part of a continuing column. He takes a look at Crayon Shinchan 1, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon 1, and Shaolin Soccer 1+2.

I've flipped through Crayon in the store before (it is basically made up of gag strips that are a page or two long, so no complex continuity here), and it was hilarious. I really want to pick up some volumes when I get more money in. A must for parents.

Actually, for those that like Shinchan, Azumanga Daioh may also be worth a look, as it is another humor strip manga (with some longer stories thrown in). It involves the misadventures of some students and their teacher and has quite a following (and was also adapted into an anime series).
