GoGo Monster, Taiyo Matsumoto (VIZ Media)

Matsumoto's works that have been released in English are often met with high critical praise and low sales. His style, manga with a heavy European comic influence, has earned him a following, but the surrealistic nature of his stories might scare off more casual readers. GoGo Monster manages to showcase both the uniqueness of his art and strangeness of his storylines. Yuki Tachibana is an elementary student who can see the other side, a world full of mischievous spirits. It's a darkly whimsical coming-of-age story and a great introduction to Matsumoto's work.
