Not surprising to see Fist of the Blue Sky on the list, as that is apparently the last volume of the manga due to Comic Bunch's cancelation.

I had no idea Peace Maker is still going. I assume that's Kurogane, the second series, right?

Wow, looks like there was a five year gap since volume 5 was published. Wonder what's going on between Suzu (and his cat harem) and Tetsu now.

No the manga in the list is Peace Maker, a western-styled manga that runs in Ultra Jump. It's far from the first time two mangas have had similar titles, though.

Ah, okay. Same name, different story. It links to the prequel of Peace Maker Kurogane, one that finished its run in 2001.

Can't believe Naruto's hit vol. 53 and still shows little signs of ending. My wallet weeps at your stamina, Kishimoto; you've long since crossed over into Takahashi Territory.

No. Ryoji Minagawa's Peace Maker has absolutely nothing to do with Nanae Chrono's Peace Maker. Just seeing the different name of the mangaka should tell you that. Similar name but absolutely no relation whatsoever to each other.

Right, but the cover shown is that of Peacemaker Kurogane.

Anyway, thanks kill-chan for clearing that up. I'd always thought PMK had finished since a volume hadn't been released in so long (I've only read up to 3, which is what ADV manga released... though now I see Tokyopop has released 4 and soon to release 5, so I should pick those up), so it surprised me to see a volume being released after five years.
