I have 10,000 words to make up for the heartbreak.

*New comics aren't out until Thursday around here, so that's why the new comics post isn't going to be up until Tuesday night.

In the meantime, I recently (finally) posted the rest of my two part look at Manga - it's an early '80s anthology book that purported to introduce the magic of Japanese comics and culture to English-reading audiences, although the differences between manga then and Manga then are telling, as is the state of manga in North America today. Lots of pictures in this one, probably a few artists you'll recognize and several more that have gone on to interesting things. Enjoy!
