Colleen Doran's New Graphic Novel, Mangaman

Well now this is a treat, The announcement of a new graphic novel written by Barry Lyga, creator off of The Adventures of Fanboy and Gothgirl and drawn by Colleen Doran off of A Distant Soil, Sandman, Orbital and that.

A mashup of manga and Western comics from Houghton Mifflin in November, in which "Ryoko, a manga character from a manga world, falls through the Rip into the "real" world—the western world—and tries to survive as the ultimate outsider at a typical American high school."

"When Ryoko falls in love with Marissa Montaigne, the most beautiful girl in the school, his eyes turn to hearts and comic tension tightens as his way of being drawn and expressing himself clashes with this different Western world in which he is stuck in. "Panel-holed" for being different, Ryoko has to figure out how to get back to his manga world, back through the Rip . . . all while he has hearts for eyes for a girl from the wrong kind of comic book."

Yeah, that should do it. More pics and stuff here.
. And you can preorder from Amazon right now!
