What’s on Your Comic Christmas List?

While sorting through the graphic novel shelf, I was reminded of a few things I’d like to read, and given that it’s that time of year, I put together a wish list of comic things I’d like to see:

  1. The final volume of Omaha the Cat Dancer, with the long-promised conclusion (reprinting began 2006)
  2. The ability to own all of the digital comic files you purchase, not just rent them from a licensing company
  3. More Oishinbo volumes
  4. A translated print version of Fumi Yoshinaga’s What Did You Eat Yesterday?
  5. The next U.S. volume of Even a Monkey Can Draw Manga
  6. To find out what was behind what was going on in Colonia

What’s on your comic wish list?

Update: James Vance says that the final Omaha volume is due late summer 2013.

    More Oishinbo for sure. I would like to see a volume on Japanese sweets/desserts, which seemed to me like an odd omission from the translated A La Carte volumes (I don’t know if there’s such a volume in Japan, though). On a side note, I was at a Japanese bookstore on Wednesday, and they had the latest volume on display – vol. 109! Crazy how long it’s been running.

    Other than that, more Drops of God is at the top of my wishlist, as well as a collection of Evan Dorkin’s Eltingville stories, which I’ve been wanting for years. Also, licensing of Saint Young Men, Donyatsu (even though it’s still so new), and Silver Spoon would make my 2013 as well.

    Enthusiastically seconding 2 and 3 on your list.

    More Beasts of Burden.

    More Northstar and Kyle in the X-Books, less of Kyle as the damsel-in-distress.

    A release date on the collected edition of the new Courtney Crumrin series.

    A Castle Waiting omnibus.

    Uncensored translated editions of Wake and Swords of Rome.

    For folks to stop forgetting to put Age of Bronze in my pull-box.

    And to get to 2014 without having any of the characters I like raped, molested, or have sexual abuse shoehorned into their backstories for quick angst.

    Man, that last one… agree, but so sad it has to be said.

    Weird… I honestly can’t really think of much. I’d like to have the Legion of Super-Heroes Archive 13 in order to continue my collection. Yet looking at best of lists I see nothing that stands out that I’d ask for.

    I’ve read some good comics this year, but I don’t see anything to own in hard form or that I think I’d read again.
