Hello and welcome to i ♥ manga! Started in May 2009, i ♥ manga is written by me, Lorena Nava Ruggero. Started as a way to chronicle the many manga series I've read over the years, I've since added periodic graphic novel and light novel reviews, and links to manga-related content I've written for other blogs and websites, including MangaCast, Flashlight Worthy and Manga Bookshelf.

As a fan of comic books and graphic novels for some time, I've attended San Diego Comic-Con International for about a decade. As a professional writer, I find sequential art an extremely fascinating way of presenting a story. From composition to the way you tell a story in a graphic novel format, there's just so much more to story-telling this way.

If you're interested in contacting me directly, please feel free to leave a comment, or to e-mail me at lorena (dot) ruggero (at) gmail (dot) com. You can also follow me on Twitter, where I talk about and link to the many things that amuse, entertain or enlighten me. But, fair warning: I also tweet a lot about my work and personal life.
