Jubei-Chan 2: The Counter Attack of Siberia Yagyu - (V.2) Vendetta
Distributed by Geneon Entertainment
Review by Tom Good
Yes, this DVD has a long, awkward title, but it is all part of the joke: Jubei-Chan is a brilliant, hilarious parody of the typical action/adventure anime. The heroine Jiyu (nicknamed Jubei-chan) is a junior high school girl who happens to be the reincarnation of the 17th century samurai Yagyu Jubei Mitsuyoshi. The historical Yagyu Jubei is traditionally depicted wearing an eye patch. When Jiyu puts on her magical artifact, the Lovely Eye Patch, it transforms her into a tall, beautiful, super-powerful female samurai. Despite its power, the Lovely Eye Patch is shaped like an absurdly cute glowing pink heart. [more]

Stories and Art by Karl Christian
A Drunken Tiki/Ennui Production

Review by Kathy LaFollett
Again Karl Christian offers up a Black and White orgy of character interaction and development.
Angst Boy Number 5 opens with a montage of inks, photos and topography; a veritable smorgasbord of itchy thoughts. Karl as an alter boy, BATBOY from the tabloids, lyrics from David Bowie (his hallucinogenic years) toon-girls of polar emotions and the opening salvo of Angst, "The cogs and gears of Angst's brain shuddered, locked, and gave up."
God I love Karl Christian's synapses. [more]

Star Trek: Vanguard: Harbinger
by David Mack
Published by Pocket Books
Review by Kathryn Ramage
Starbase 47, named "Vanguard," has ostensibly been built to establish a Federation presence between Klingon and Tholian space. There�s a lot going on on Vanguard: an Orion crimelord has an active syndicate; there�s a Klingon spy surgically altered to look human; an investigative journalist is not only looking for a good, juicy story, but is having an affair with a married Starfleet officer; a piano-playing Vulcan seems to be arranging a few things behind the scenes; and an exoarcheologist has discovered an ancient artifact on a nearby planet, and a moss with an unusually complex genome sequence. At the center of it all is some unspoken secret--something is going on on Vanguard. [more]
