Yakitate!! Japan is a Japanese comic book (food manga), which is now available in English in the US. Vol. 2 will be released here this month. (This is from the November issue of Saveur, so the English-language edition should be available now.) Kazuma Azuma, the hero, wants to be a baker, and the comic includes recipes, along with the action of traditional comics. There's a sample strip in Saveur, and they're written to be read right to left, top to bottom. Looks like fun.
