(W) Barry Lyga (A/CA) Colleen Doran
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. Barry Lyga writes a metafictive masterpiece as manga meets traditional Western comic book style, while Colleen Doran combines manga techniques and conventions with Western comic book storytelling to create a unique, seamless - though not Ripless - comic hybrid that is by turns hilarious and heartbreaking.
