Bleach
Ichigo Kurosaki has always been able to see ghosts, but this ability doesn’t change his life nearly as much as his close encounter with Rukia Kuchiki, a Soul Reaper and member of the mysterious Soul Society. While fighting a Hollow, an evil spirit that preys on humans who display psychic energy, Rukia attempts to lend Ichigo some of her powers so that he can save his family; but much to her surprise, Ichigo absorbs every last drop of her energy. Now a full-fledged Soul Reaper himself, Ichigo quickly learns that the world he inhabits is one full of dangerous spirits and, along with Rukia—who is slowly regaining her powers—it’s Ichigo’s job to protect the innocent from Hollows and help the spirits themselves find peace.

A comiXologist Recommends - MANGA EDITION:
Harris Smith recommends Death Note

Manga is hitting comiXology in a big way this week with the addition of Viz to our slate of publishers.  Among the first wave of titles are several popular favorites (Dragon Ball Z, Naruto) and cult classics (Nana, One-Punch Man).  Falling squarely in the middle is Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata’s Death Note.  Originally published from 2003 to 2006, Death Note became something of a media phenomenon in Japan, inspiring a novel, a video game, an Anime series and three live action feature films.

Odd but eminently readable, Death Note tells the story of Light, a bored teenager who discovers a book that allows him to cause the death of anyone whose name and face he knows.   The book belongs to Ryuk, one of the most remarkably designed demons in comics history, a hulking gothic-glam monstrosity who looks like a cross between Liberatore’s Ranx and Steve Ditko’s The Creeper.  Rather than try to get his Death book back, Ryuk views Light’s murderous schemes with a kind of bemused ambivalence.

Rather than veer into familiar teen horror, nerd revenge territory, Death Note is fairly epic in scope, as Light, mad with his newfound power, uses the book to attempt to rid the world of evil, not out of altruism, but in order to recreate the world as a Utopia with himself as “the god of the new world.”  This imaginative grandiosity is a big part of Death Note’s appeal.  The story is daring and unpredictable, sometimes absurd and humorous, other times stark and frightening.  Death Note is a fast-paced, fascinating example of the heights of creativity Manga has to offer.
