Ouran High School Host Club, Vol. 1.png

January 2019

Ouran High School Host Club, Volume 1

Bisco Hatori

Comic Selection #13

Simultaneously a satire and a celebration of clichés, Ouran High School Host Club skewers the stereotypes and tropes that have been rampant in shōjo manga since the formation of the genre. Centering on Haruhi Fujioka, a young woman attending the prestigious Ouran Academy who is frequently mistaken for a boy because of her androgynous appearance, Ouran High School Host Club begins with Fujioka stumbling upon a secret meeting of the Academy’s Host Club, a group of young men who gather to entertain women with sweets and tea. Following a rocky introduction, Fujioka is forced to join the club in order to repay a debt and soon discovers a hidden talent as a host. Praised for its humor and its lampooning of otaku culture, Ouran High School Host Club has been hailed as the first example of a fujoshi comedy.

Whiteout, Volume 1

Greg Rucka and Steve Lieber

Comic Selection #14

A murder takes place at McMurdo Station in Antarctica, and it’s up to Carrie Stetko, a Deputy U.S. Marshal, to find out who’s responsible and bring them to justice. Unfortunately, one body leads to another and Stetko soon finds herself racing from one Antarctic station to another as she strives to unmask the killer before she becomes their next victim. One of the most lauded comics to come from Oni Press, Whiteout was met with critical acclaim upon its debut for Greg Rucka’s taut, thrilling narrative and Steve Lieber’s engaging, dynamic illustrations.
