One-Punch Man, Vol. 1 Paperback
by ONE, Yusuke Murata
Part of the One Punch Man series
Nothing about Saitama passes the eyeball test when it comes to superheroes, from his lifeless expression to his bald head to his unimpressive physique.
However, this average-looking guy has a not-so-average problem - he just can't seem to find an opponent strong enough to take on!
Every time a promising villain appears, he beats the snot out of 'em with one punch!
Can Saitama finally find an opponent who can go toe-to-toe with him and give his life some meaning? Or is he doomed to a life of superpowered boredom?

Review by ElizaJane
I love One-Punch!!! I've read chapters of it here and there in Weekly Shonen Jump and have really wanted to get in on the manga from the beginning. What is there not to love about One-Punch? I think he's so adorable. This is probably first and foremost satire of the shonen genre, but it's done so well it's a great one harkening back to the days of the greats. It's got comedy, action, battles and more battles. We get Saitama's backstory and a wide range of emotions along with his adoring sidekick. Seeds have been sown for the greater story arc. This is good, plain, battle-action fun with its tongue firmly set in the cheek.
