haha, hey udon, i’m in HK right now! i live in NY but came to HK to try and make it in the entertainment field here. you miss HK at all?? it’s starting to get cooler now, thank God! mong kok, sino centre is my only source for your comic right now. =)
well, my take on the comics.
well, HK comics…bleh. even though they come out on a weekly/bi-weekly basis, their art work and story telling is really not…up to snuff. storm riders is pretty much my only fav HK comic. everything else is crap. and you can’t deny that EVERY FRIGGIN comic looks the same!! currently, i’ve been buying the recently released SvC chaos comic…it’s…not good. why do i buy it if it’s not good?? so i can get my SF fix. ugh, i’m gonna stop, seriously.
oh and by the way, if you can, pick up the latest issue #6 with ken and geese on the cover…i think you’ll find something very familiar in it. TRUST ME. let’s just say, HK comics are notorious for “borrowing things”.
on japanese manga, you’re right, it is pretty much a huge part of their culture, that’s why it comes out the way it does.
don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with the one month per issue thing, i’m used to it cuz i’ve collected comics since i can remember. i’ve stopped for a while now and just got back into it cuz of SF and the TF series. but SF is just so good that i’m sure we all want more of it. lol, if you can have 2 issues per month, and they end up looking like the HK comics…HELL NO. lol, forget it. go back to the once a month thing.
well, i’ve rambled on long enough. again, i’m impressed with how the SF comic is coming along and am very happy that someone is finally doing a SF comic that has awesome art and that i can READ! (the different japanese mangas of SF are either in chinese or japanese, and i can’t read both…so)
