The whats-up

Just a quick update today to apologize for the lapse in reviews the last few days and thus the stall in my android week. The remaining two reviews (June 15th edit: Only one review it seems, sorry!) will be posted over the weekend, and next week will focus on some more reviews for recent books. A bunch of double shifts at work (I shall not miss you, shift work), art commissions and some comic collaboration work has kept me super busy the last few days but it should wrap itself up shortly! All patience appreciated.

In the meantime, I recommend checking out my last post about global manga, in particular the comments. A lot of great points were made as a bunch of people graciously shared their thoughts; very interesting read!

And also on the note of global mangas, a few new appearances on Amazon.com in recent days: Hollow Fields (Vol. 03), Invisible, Wolverine: Prodigal Son (Vol. 01) and X-Men: Misfits (Vol. 01) (see above image).

And finally on a more disappointing note, Rivkah says that she was told by her Tokyopop editor that Steady Beat, volume 3, will not be seeing print. It’s a series I’ve really enjoyed and was looking forward to the third and final volume. Rivkah is currently seeing if she can get the print rights back from Tokyopop and atleast things are looking surprising good in that regard so far!
