Tricked
by Alex Robinson
Published by Top Shelf

Review by Tom Good

People on Public Radio talk about "driveway moments." These are the times when motorists pull into their driveways and stop, but cannot get out of the car because the radio show is so interesting. So they sit there in the driveway until the show ends. The equivalent for books must be the "alarm clock moment." I look at the time, realize how late it is, and tell myself that I have to get up for work the next day and that I should really go to sleep. Then I keep reading anyway. That is what happened when I read Tricked. Once the story gets rolling, it is hard to put down, and at 350 pages it is not a quick read. [more]

Girls Bravo Vol. 2 DVD
Distributed by Geneon

Review by Tom Good

In the universe of Girls Bravo, whenever Yukinari opens up a door without knowing what is on the other side, he always discovers a room full of naked or scantily clad girls. Then Kirie yells at him for being a pervert, and she beats the tar out of him. (Maybe he should learn to knock.) Miharu, an alien girl from the world of Seiren, and the only girl Yukinari is not physically allergic to, stands around being cute, sweet, and obsessed with food. Occasionally she makes conveniently sexy mistakes with Earth culture, such as when she wears a maid's apron with nothing underneath because she saw it in "one of Yukinari's magazines." [more]

Bambi and Her Pink Gun, Vol. 1
by Atsushi Kaneko
Translation: Duane Johnson
Digital Manga Publishing

Review by Tom Good

Bambi is a punk girl whose mission is to deliver a kidnapped child to the mysterious "Old Men." But when the child's father puts out a 500 million yen bounty on Bambi, a horde of would-be assassins pursues her, eager to kill her and collect the reward. How can this teenage girl have a chance against so many hit men? The story hints that Bambi is somehow not quite human, but more like a ferocious cornered animal, "a monster with self-preservation instincts." [more]
