Description
From wikipedia:
Rising Stars of Manga (RSoM) was an annual comic anthology published in English by TOKYOPOP from 2002 to 2008, as well as the name of a contest. It was originally semi-annual, but switched to annual beginning with the 6th volume. Currently, the program is suspended, as TOKYOPOP is not accepting any submissions at this time.[1]

Each issue represents the results of a contest, in which aspiring comic book artists from all over the U.S. each submit a 15-20 page one-shot comic. Tokyopop staff select the best entry in each genre category (Comedy, Action, Mystery, Romance, Drama, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror) to publish in the anthology. Each winner is awarded a $1000 prize. In addition, a People's Choice winner is decided from around 20 entries by votes from online viewers or users of the Toykopop website. The People's Choice winner is awarded $500 and is published in the anthology as well (although a genre winner may also be the People's Choice winner). Before the seventh RSoM competition (in 2007), the staff of TOKYOPOP picked one grand-prize winner, a Second and a Third prize winner, and eight runners-up with no distinctions in genre.

I'm giving this a ten not because all of the 60+ oneshot stories spanning those 8 volumes are all deserving (they are of varying quality, as you can imagine), but because I truly admire the lengths that Tokyopop went to to find fresh American talent and launch the careers of several amazing artists.

I'm a big fan of oneshots because I think it's a mark of real talent when an artist can present a striking, well executed story that leaves a lasting impression despite being short. There are several of these exemplary oneshots contained in the pages of RSoM.

I would say the same thing about its sister series: RSoM UK & Ireland.

These volumes can be hard to find because they are out of print, but I think they're definitely worth hunting down in a library or used book store. Give it a try!
