1st manga to make list recognizing "quality books with significant and authentic GLBTQ content"

The Rainbow Project, a task force made up of the Social Responsibilities Round Table and the Gay, Lesbian, Transgender and Queer Round Table of the American Library Association released its 2012 Rainbow List last month. The list included Takako Shimura's Wandering Son volume 1 from Fantagraphics Books.

The Rainbow Project presents a list each year of "quality books with significant and authentic GLBTQ content, which are recommended for people from birth through eighteen years of age." Wandering Son is the first manga to make the list. The Rainbow Project released its first list in 2008.

Wandering Son's first volume also made the American Library Association's Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) division's list of the top 10 graphic novels for teens in 2012.

Fantagraphics Books released the second volume of Wandering Son in December.
