From Japan, with love
This adult-themed manga, Wild Rock, puts sort of a "Brokeback Mountain" spin on the genre. Emba and Yuuen are two young warrior boys each destined to become chieftain of their feuding clans. When they meet and fall in love, are they doomed to heartbreak, or can they own up to their feelings? The story's quite simple, but the delicate artwork by Kazusa Takashima makes it a gorgeous book.
