Our first First Storm Manga project is a commission: we have been ‘hired’ to create a short manga (a Japanese-style comic book) to promote the San Japan 2.x Japanese Culture and Anime convention. The manga is supposed to feature the convention’s four mascot characters: a bat named Dios (like most folks, I was all, wait, that means “God” in Spanish! I presume its something different in Japanese) a longhorn named Suzaku, an armadillo named Hinode, and a girl named Sana.
The story will consist of all four characters encountering some kind of (hopefully) funny situation as they voyage to the convention. I am the storywriter/editor (because I can’t draw) and we have three different artists working on the project. Its lots of fun working with them, and I think it will come together quite nicely when its all said and done. Click the picture above for the full image, and stay tuned!
