Manga gets made here.

On March 7th, a kind user over at the Manga Raiders forums had read Final Track, my Yen Press Talent Search entry, and sent me an email requesting an interview for his high school project.

[wppb Polterguys Vol. 1 Book Progress=35] Progress on Polterguys Vol. 1 35%

With Chapter 2 completed behind the scenes, the book is now about a third of the way done. It’s been pretty exhilarating working and putting up pages not long after. I’m super relieved and grateful people are enjoying Polterguys so far. But maybe I should really save these sentiments for the conclusion, huh? After all, there’s still a TON of ground to cover.

Now last week, I made the mistake of plugging a post about webcomics which should actually be my topic for the week after this. I’m saving the entire post for a bunch of awesome female creators and their past and present works I enjoyed so please stay tuned for that. Below, I’ll talk about my first real exposure to manga and a daring group of Filipino artists that showed me the possibilities of comics and publishing.
