This May 26, the third volume of Planet Manga, the Japanese comic magazine with national authors. And he does it with a cover for a new series: Backhome, by Sergio Hernández and Toni Caballero, a fast-paced seinen in true Naoki Urasawa style that begins with a double chapter.

The new series is accompanied by new chapters of Gryphoon (by Luis Montes), Alter Ego (by Ana C. Sánchez), Good Game! (by Blanca Mira and Kaoru Okino), Meadow Queen (by Risu Risu), Wing (by Senshiru) and La historia del manga (by Marc Bernabé, Oriol Estrada and Marian Company), in addition to the penultimate chapter of Shion (by Alba Cardona) and the Uroboros (Ernest Sala) release. The absence of Aaron Fire (from Álvaro Jaudenes) is due to a break to plan the last chapters and return with more energy in the following installments.

But Backhome is not the only novelty in this issue! We premiered the two-episode miniseries Beastly Circus by award-winning Kaoru Okino. And as for short stories we have the return of two of the most celebrated authors of our first issue: Marta Salmons offers us the short story Mr. Lightfeet and Akira Pantsu, by absolute popular request, returns to the much-loved universe of Midoriboshi with a sequel from Kiku's point of view.

As if all this were not enough, we will have a new interview by Umaru-chan to the authors of Backhome, with unpublished designs, the 4-koma by Kalathras and Rawder and illustrations by Laia López, Judit Mallol, Santi Casas and the excellent quality that brings the incorporation of Inma R. with a double page drawing.

PREVIOUSLY ON PLANET MANGA

GRYPHOON

Noha Argonnar's greatest dream is to follow in his brother's footsteps and become a member of the Gryphoon, the only elite Arkan military unit capable of defeating the Eckhos. In order to achieve this, you must first pass "The Trial of Valor", a race against the clock towards the academy where future Ark heroes are trained. Along the way he will encounter numerous dangers and will soon understand that the only way to overcome them is by allying himself with three other candidates: ex-convict Khaine, the giant Anthorxa and the ingenious Keats. Can this motley group eventually become Gryphoon?

ALTER EGO

Noel is deeply in love with his best friend Elena and her world collapses when she starts dating a boy. One night, in a moment of despair, he ventures with a stranger who is on the street. This girl will turn out to be June, Elena's other best friend, and therefore yet another person to compete with. But in a group outing to the zoo you will discover that you are not the only one who has feelings for Elena and will understand that if you want to keep your friendship you will have to overcome your insecurities and jealousy.

GOOD GAME

Before passing away, Yuki's mother confesses that she has a brother. After this great revelation, our protagonist decides to commit a great madness: traveling to Spain with her best friend, Enishi, and entering a video game contest in which her brother will also participate. But once there you will discover that starting a fraternal relationship with a person you do not know will not be as easy as she originally thought.

UROBOROS

A distant kingdom lives in misery and the only way to save it is by obtaining the Eternal Egg, an ancient relic guarded by the dragon god called Uroboros and an essential ingredient to create the philosopher's stone. The man who achieves such a feat will be able to keep half the gem and although it is increasingly difficult to find heroes capable of achieving such an undertaking, the greed of the human being is always stronger than his reason.

SHION

30 years after the 1st Space War that devastated Earth, a colony of humans discovers a sign of life from their destroyed planet. How it can be that a human being has managed to survive such apocalyptic circumstances is quite an enigma, but there is a fact that researchers do have clear: Shion represents a threat to all humanity but it can also be the key to returning home. It is for this reason that they decide to take it away and investigate it, although there are some members of the ship who oppose it. But Shion wants to return to her true home and Koro, the only person who treats her as a human being and not as a monster or an experiment, will help her to get it.

MIDORIBOSHI

Amame has had a recurring dream since she was a child: that she is a water witch on an apparently uninhabited small planet. But one night you will meet a plant bush called Kiku and together they will populate with vegetation that paradise named Midoriboshi. Suddenly, just as Amame has her first love affair, Kiku disappears. It is at this moment that he realizes that perhaps he had more feelings than he imagined towards someone who does not even know if it is real.

Several years have passed and Kiku still does not appear, but one day walking down the street he finds himself in a flower shop with a nostalgic name that awakens his hope. Indeed, inside is Kiku. We know what Amame's story is, but what is Kiku's? How did she experience this separation?

WING

Erika's parents are an eminence in the world of sports and her wish is that her daughter follow in her footsteps. Although Erika is happy playing Rugby and going to classes with her great friend Hitoshi, what she is really passionate about is drawing.

One day, in the stands of the rugby stadium, she observes that there is a mysterious boy looking very closely at the training sessions and she is so impressed that she cannot avoid portraying him. That same afternoon, he goes to buy the new number of his favorite manga and to his surprise he discovers that his mysterious boy is the shop assistant! Your first reaction will be to get out of there as soon as possible, but the rush plays a trick on you and makes you forget your sketchbook on the counter.

MEADOW QUEEN

From birth Kethrylia was destined to be a great warrior from the kingdom of Mainread. But Lia is already tired of fighting bloody battles and what she wants is to stop fighting so that she can be together with her beloved Violen. Finally, when she is called up again, she decides to defect so that she can take charge of her life and be free.

MANGA HISTORY

It is the first day of Torosuke Arisugawa in the magazine of Gekkan History but there is a problem: you have no idea of ​​manga. Your director and your partner should arm themselves with patience and start explaining everything from the beginning. But they will have the help of "the virtual room", a tool that will allow them to teleport to the past and see with their own eyes the entire history of the manga.

ERRATA

Errata faith: The double page at the end of Midoriboshi should be read between pages 10 and 11 (172-173 of the magazine).

The story will be published again in correct order in number 5. Our apologies to the author and readers.

Surely you have already rearranged the furniture, done wardrobe cleaning and have put your personal bookstore in order. And if it happened to you like us, surely you have found in hand with a book that you did not even remember having.

The machine does not stop and we continue to know more about its authors. Today we speak with Marta Salmons.

How did you enter the world of illustration / comics?
A while ago, I went to the Joso school to do the comic course with my friend where we already had the odd story in mind. At that time a teacher asked us for a portfolio to present in a project that was underway in France and there we took the first step as Skizocrilian Studio. Then we already introduced ourselves with Pechanko! in the manga contest carried out by Norma Editorial and hence we were known more nationally.

Your first contact with Planeta Manga was …
The editor contacted me directly, presented me with the idea of ​​the project and asked if I wanted to be part of the adventure. I doubted because we had already worked on a similar project in Skizocrilian for the French market but the desire to do a solo story again pushed me to continue.

How did the plot for MARCHITADO LIONEL come about?
It's been around a few times. The first idea of ​​the character was much more cynical and was intended for an extra story of another and the premise at the time was "Prota is bitter of his work and throws everything out." But when I started defining it I found that I wanted to tell a lot of things and concerns and I wanted it to be read independently. And has
ended up being somewhat more complex; this story boycotts me (ha, ha).

What do you do first: character creation or script? What is your usual work circuit like?
What was the first; the egg or the chicken? It depends if I work with someone else who passes the script to me, I attend to what the character and his descriptions suggest to me. If I take care of everything, I start the story with the characters a little at a time. I plan the distribution of the page, which can go and discard what is not. Then I'm going to clean it until I have the inking, put the wefts and fit and finish defining the dialogue.

How do you value the reception the magazine has had and what would you highlight about it?
I think it started off on the right foot, people seem to have liked it and aroused their interest. Its strong point is the diversity of genres and types of history, making it possible to interest a wide variety of readers who like to read everything.

Your favorite Planet Manga series is…
Committed question … I like to value the series when they are already finished and they just took off with what was published. They all have their what. By series they give me a good feeling Good game and Gryphoon and I would like to highlight the short stories that I have enjoyed Midori Boshi, Soulmate, Uroboros, the Witch and Heart Piece.

Next projects.
It remains to come out Mr. Lightfeet, short story of a couple of dancers that also appears in number 3 of the magazine Planeta Manga. And the project I'm working on for Webtoon now "The cold case detective". Then I don't know what will come. 🙂

Because not having a partner does not imply anything negative about us, it does not take away our value as human beings, it does not make us less interesting.

The map of affections chase the trail of the people who build the hidden stories of the places. Places where absences are evoked, strange events, where inexplicable crimes occur … places where personal tensions coexist with family ones and where only the drive of good sediments the sediment necessary to continue living.

A map of those stories that may be happening in your neighborhood without you realizing it: love relationships where the age difference is the pattern, people who struggle to understand the meaning of love, how chance reconfigures everything without asking permission, the role of poetic justice or how the passage of time can be the highest arbiter.

If you want to discover to what extent affections mark the pulse of all things, don't miss Ana Merino's wonderful new novel.

Are you dying to know how it goes on? Well, get a blanket and some snacks because as soon as you start reading you will surely not be able to stop for a second.


How do you live the only day in which we do what we really want? Something like what many are doing these days of home life, in which social imperatives are being a little forgotten …

Saturday night It is a captivating portrait of people, places and customs with the magnetic prose of the author of The burning library, Susan Orlean.

This book cannot be missing in a post where we talk about raising your spirits. Because Dr. Rojas tells us something very interesting: good things happen, but they need a plan.

Joining the scientific, psychological and human point of view, the author offers us a deep reflection, peppered with useful advice and with an eminently didactic vocation, about the application of our own abilities to the effort to give us a full and happy existence.
What can we do to achieve it? Knowing and optimizing certain areas of the brain, setting goals and objectives in life, exercising the will, starting emotional intelligence, developing assertiveness, avoiding excess self-criticism …

Definitely Marian Rojas It offers us a theoretical and practical guide so that we can achieve a good star through personal work. How is your luck lately, reader? 😉


In this book Curro Cañete invites us to become our own coach and to be our own guide, with guidelines and exercises so that we learn to feel good and to realize our true wishes and aspirations.

Because for the author, happiness is not only a destination, but also the path that we all must travel: Do you remember all the times you spoke badly to yourself? Of those fears that have scared you so many times? Of everything you have stopped doing for fear of what they will say? Leave all that behind! Now! There is no time to lose!".

With The power to trust you Cañete helps us to awaken the inner strength that we all have (even if we don't know it yet) and that will help us change our lives and go where we want to go. Are you ready for change?


And we are going with a hard truth that needs to be told: bullying or bullying. And the brave story of those who have suffered it and managed to overcome it: Angel Marble, author of the book Smile even if it costs you.

«Yes, I was bullied and many times I thought I would not get over it. The road was long and difficult, but in the end I smiled again. And I learned many important things: not to give up, to believe in myself and to be a better person. And that stalkers are also often victims. Many people helped me. Without them, surely I would not have come this far nor would I have had the courage to tell what I lived. Without them, perhaps today you would not be able to say: smile!».

Àngela Mármol is the first TikTok influencer who talks about her experience as a victim of bullying and who invites us to take a positive lesson, even in the most difficult situations. Without a doubt, a life lesson from which we can all learn something.


And so far our list of essentials for today, reader. We trust that among these books you will find a faithful companion who will help you to better spend these special days. And if you finish quickly with the list of titles that we have prescribed, We invite you to discover our selection of books to be happy. Which one are you going to start with?

Happy reading! ☺️📚
