Hello blogosphere! Here’s the midweek update.
MangaWidget News: I’ve added pages that have been in limbo for a while now: Links, which gives links to all the manga publishers as well as some of the bloggers I admire, and Contact, which, of course, is my contact information. I contribute at Comics Village, Eye of the Vortex, and write here, so if you want internet exposure for reviews, well, you’ve come to the right nerd.
Nick Simmons, author/illustrator of the now infamous Incarnate, is a moron. This Friday, check out my thoughts on the illustrator’s scandal, and his response to public outcry (it’s adding to the pile, yes, but hopefully I have some unique points to bring to the table).
Other things to note this week:
