Ah, summer time! Time for fireworks, fresh strawberries, and catching up on all those comics, graphic novels, manga, manhwa, BDs and other things with sequential words and pictures I've been meaning to get to. So here's a quick round-up of three works in sequential narrative from around the world I'd recommend as summer reading. At least, for those with eclectic tastes!

Today I'd like to write about Fujoshi no Hinkaku, or "The Dignity of Fujoshi." This semi-autobiographical manga-essay was written by an office worker/artist going under the pen name "Kusame," a pun on the characters for "rotten woman" in the word "fujoshi." It introduces readers to the world of Boy's Love fan culture through the character of Fujoko, an office lady and secret fujoshi who discovers that her strong, smart, fashionable boss Takayo also harbours a hidden passion for BL. Fujoko declares that if great women like Takayo can be fujoshi, she too will aim to become just like her. She will become a fujoshi with dignity!
