The Bug Boys fan comic I drew while we were sitting at the table @MoCCA2012! In which Rhino-B creates a comic-within-a-comic: SLUG BOYS, and also shares THE FEELS OF ALL CARTOONISTS, and other visual artists. wahwah wah!
next up is a odd doodle, it has at least three interpretations:
- “Rhino-B has forgotten to buy snacks for the picnic!”
- “Rhino-B is AGAST at the thought of unhealthy snacks!”
- “Rhino-B contemplates the possibility of a corporate buy-out on BB Productions, Inc!”
Y’ll can check out the Bug Boys at Laura’s website [ http://lauraknetzger.com/ ] or tumbr [ laurark.tumblr.com ]!
oh & eh-heh, because I’m tagging this with the net-ready, kid-friendly #BugBoys I’ll mention that most of my art is nsfw except the times when I inexplicably draw children’s television cartoon characters…huh.

Fantagraphics continues its line of acclaimed literary manga with new classic Nijigahara Holograph by Inio Asano. As society slowly spirals into darkness an unexplained explosion in the butterfly population is just the first of many curiosities in the town where rumors of a creature in a tunnel under the school spread like wildfire. A curse haunts the town as the story follows the scapegoat, Arié, who is plunged into the tunnel’s horrors and offered up to the creature. Many other characters harbor secrets, grudges, suicidal thoughts, and the physical scars of battles lost. How are they all linked and can the citizens of the town live with what they’ve done as the years creep by? Asano’s mysticism and slow terror take over the town in the span of a decade as told in two timelines.
Nijigahara Holograph is scheduled for release in February 2014 and Asano joins Shimura Takako (Wandering Son) and Moto Hagio (The Heart of Thomas, A Drunken Dream and Other Stories) in the Fantagraphics line of premium manga by the world’s greatest cartoonists. Translated by Matt Thorn, this 200 page book of beautiful black and white comics will be printed in gorgeous hardcover edition and presented in original “right to left” manga style for an authentic reading experience.Inio Asano’s previous translated works include Solanin and What a Wonderful World and he continues to create new work in Japan as one of the young voices of his generation.

This is a really good article about how quickly people actually die from cuts and punctures inflicted by swords and knives. However, it’s really really long and I figured that since I was summarizing for my own benefit I’d share it for anyone else who is writing fiction…
this is really cool but I can’t make it 1/3rd of the “summary” without starting to get queasy and panic atm. rebloggin’ because SWORDS COMICS ACTION~!
