Buddha vol.2, Osamu Tezuka (414pp) I read Siddhartha by Herman Hesse years ago and loved it. Somehow I never pictured the young prince surrounded by a bevy of naked dancing girls in the playroom. Nor the language used (mosly anglo saxon). I don't think I'll be introducing this series to my students interested in Buddhism. They can find it on their own.
Lupin III vol.3, Monkey Punch (191pp) Yep It's Lupin, oh so bad and dangerous. And since when did Goemon date Fujiko? That ain't right. I love the letter that brings Lupin to the north Pole:
Please rescue me. I'm trapped in an iceberg.

Aww that Lupin. Such a sensitive soul.
