Weekend Doujinshi Review, 15/08/09

After a brief detour for my San Diego Comic-Con report and making my own doujinshi for Comitia 113, I’m finally back to reviewing doujinshi. As usual, I am concentrating on purely original creations, the equivalent of self-published minicomics in the west. 1. 追憶の森で (In the Forest of Reminiscence) by Kamei […]


San Diego Comic-Con 2015

San Diego Comic-Con 2015! I’m back again, for the third time, after skipping last year’s. I haven’t written a con report since the Livejournal days, so I’ve been looking forward to this. This is a purely personal, journal-type post, so forgive me for being very self-indulgent! We had an exceptionally […]


Making TCOM

The past month or so, I haven’t made a lot of time to go out, or even for this blog. Instead, I have spent my time living the dream: drawing comics all day in my underwear. Glorious! And today I was rewarded for the work: A box of professionally printed books […]


Doujinshi review, 15/4/29

Hey there! Glad you could join me for another installment of my mostly-weekly doujinshi review series. This time around, I thought I’d go for a genre I haven’t touched on before. No, not boys’ love, I’ll leave that to the experts… The books I am going to introduce you to today […]


Archery 101

Okay, so I saw the poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron today, and there were a few things so fundamentally wrong with Hawkeye’s archery that I and my friends have been ridiculing it all day… It reminded me of this article I had written a couple of years back, and […]


Mid-week doujinshi review, 15/4/21

Another doujinshi review, in the same week? You bet! Here’s another gem that I got at Comitia. Okaeri by Hatobue Kurocha and Seta   Okaeri is a collaboration between two artists, whose work comes together to form one book in a way I might have never experienced before. There’s no “writer” […]


Weekend doujinshi review, 15/4/19

Welcome back to the wildly irregularly scheduled Weekend doujinshi review! After a look at a slightly disturbing book last week, I am back to more all-ages appropriate fare this week, as usual firmly rooted in the sci-fi/fantasy category. Kimi no Hanazono (Your flower garden) by Kotaro Yuki (duke)   I […]


Weekend Doujinshi Review, 15/3/30 1

Finally, I’m back to introducing you to doujinshi I enjoyed. Life has been busy, so it’s been two months again… Amefurashi by Torimura (circle: Daiouika) WARNING: This book is about sexual abuse of a child. If you’re squeamish about these things (and I don’t blame you if you are), please stop reading. […]


Comiket Special 6 – Otaku Summit 2015

This weekend brought with it the 6th Comiket Special, also titled “Otaku Summit.” Comiket Special is an event held every 5 years, in addition to the bi-annual regular Comic Market, and, contrary to the regular events, has an overarching theme. This time around, recognizing the growing international participation in the Comiket […]


Weekend doujinshi review, 2015/1/18

Happy New Year! I just realized I haven’t done a doujinshi review post in about 2 months. Life has been busy, but as I wrote in my previous post, I did attend Comitia 110 in November, and as always I got a few really nice books which I would like […]


International Manga Festival 2014 & Publishing a doujinshi in Japan

As I mentioned last week, I helped out my friend Philip Tan in getting a book printed in time for International Manga Festival. I figured it might be interesting for doujinshi fans or aspiring creators to hear how it happened, so here’s a little writeup. With thousands of publications being printed […]


Philip Tan doujinshi “Garan Guard” for Kaigai Manga Festa 2014

I just got done editing my friend Philip Tan’s first-ever doujinshi, Garan Guard, to be released at International Manga Festival (aka Kaigai Manga Festa) in Tokyo this weekend. 9 all-new story pages scripted and drawn by Philip, plus 21 old and new sketches and commissions, color cover, square bound, to […]

Weekend Doujinshi Review, 2014/11/9

Another weekend, another self-published manga review. Make sure to check the doujinshi tag for previous installments! This time around, I am introducing one book from Comitia 109, plus one that I got at Comic Zin. I thought you might enjoy some relaxing reads to recover from last week’s Halloween special… 1. That is not […]
