It really is exciting to walk into a bookstore in Japan and see so much manga! There's a lot of good manga in Japan but it can be difficult to find because there's SO much there! You need to spend ages going through titles to find something that is really a powerful combination of story and art. I guess this is another disappointing reality that J has to face now that he's in Osaka. Everything isn't perfect in Japan. I'm not sure how much Japanese J can read so maybe he's just judging the manga by the artistic storytelling. Friends would tell me about good manga to read and it would save me time at the bookstores. Did you have a good experience the first time you went to buy manga in Japan?

With that, we take a little break from the Black Samurai. I hope you've enjoyed this story arc with the spirits. I love drawing these pages but they do take up quite a bit of time. Thanks for checking them out!
Karl keeps trying to make good comics. What do you think of this HULK inspired one?
Thanks for the awesome take on my characters, Jackie! If you love his style as much as I do, you should CLICK HERE and head over to his comic BETWEEN FAILURES and give it a good read. He has years of archives for you to get into and enjoy. His comics are a bit more "mature" in some areas compared to mine so you kids out there might need to be careful.
Hey guys, this is my 300th comic strip! Yay! Hope you've enjoyed reading them all! I sure have enjoyed making them. Karl is excited to have another chance at a blind date like hang out thingy with Hachiro's match making friend. What will the girl be like this time? We shall see!
