Book Review: The SNES Omnibus: The Super Nintendo and Its Games, Vol. 1 (A-M)

94
Brett Weiss shines a light on Nintendo’s 16-bit superstar   Few consoles in the history of video games pack quite the legacy of the Super Nintendo. Released in 1990 in Japan, the Big N’s 16-bit successor to the hugely successful Nintendo Entertainment System was nothing short of a game…

Silver Spoon Vol. 3 Review

366
Milk and corn are very delicious. When I reviewed volume 2 of Hiromu Arakawa’s Silver Spoon, I claimed it was already one of the best manga available in America today; as of volume 3, however, I now revise that by saying it’s probably the best. Not since Yotsuba&! have…
