New York Anime Festival 2008
by I-hsiu Lin
Photographed by I-hsiu Lin

Similar to last year, the New York Anime Festival boast a huge Dealer's Room, though many of the major publishing companies was absent like Tokyopop and DMP. (I think they were focused on Yaoi-Con on the west coast which was happening that same weekend.) Those that appeared had many things in store for the convention goers. Besides the voice actors and guests that were part of the original convention scheduling, Bandai Entertainment and Funimation brought in their cast to promote Claymore, Darker then Black, Gurren Lagann and Gundam 00. There were signings and events at their booth throughout the weekend. [more]

Street Fighter #12
Story by Ken Siu-Chong
Cover Art by Jo Chen
Published by Udon Comics

Review by I-hsiu Lin

This review is a slight continuation of my previous review, Street Fighter issue 10. As mentioned before, even though I didnī't read the previous issues and am missing issue 11, the plot is easy to pick up even from here.

In issue 10, there are references to Cammy and the anti-terrorist unit, Delta Red stationed in Brazil. Issue 12 focuses on their mission there: to stop the crime syndicate, Shadaloo. Although Cammy suffers from amnesia and has a questionable past (that may have to do with their enemy target,) it does not present an issue with her teammates and commander. Their trust in her is quickly established in first few panels of the comic. This is important since the action then opens with Cammy being abducted and faint bits of her memory returns. [more]

Street Fighter #10
Story by Ken Siu-Chong
Cover Art by Jo Chen
Published by Udon Comics

Review by I-hsiu Lin

I have never followed the story for Street Fighter, but reading from issue 10 was not a problem. Action based comics has a more linear plotline and after figuring out (quite easily) who the 'good guys' and 'bad guys' are, being thrown into the middle of the action presented no hindrance in knowing what was going on.

Agent Chun-Li and Fei Long tries to locate the crime syndicate of Shadaloo in Hong Kong. We learn that Shadaloo was involved with the death of Chun-Li's father and she seeks the aid of her old martial arts teache, Master Gen. However, revenge is not the only motive for the female agent in searching for the ninja clad terrorist group. They have bigger plans that are certain to be a menace to society and the world. Of course, Chun-Li and company will be stopping them. [more]

Review by Kris

Fujimaru Senda has more on his plate than he needs. He spends his time following his little brother home from cram school (incognito, of course). He's also fighting the advances of the incubus Rei, both at home and at school. Finally, the Occult Research Club is studying him. What more can he handle? [more]

J LHLS interview with Karl Christian Krumpholz

Interview by Ginger Mayerson

Karl Christian Krumpholz took a little time out from his glamorous fast-paced life, which includes comics, illustration, and the ongoing sequential saga of the most fabulous Byron, to give J LHLS this interview. We bow down to Karl. He's so cool, I got frostbite just working on this interview.


Ginger Mayerson: So, Karl, I'm thoroughly loving your drunkard portraits. They could be a book all by themselves. Are you going to do a book of them? You should.

Karl Christian Krumpholz: Thanks a lot. I'm getting a lot of good response from the portraits. I haven't really thought about compiling a book of them as yet. There are only 34 portraits at the moment and I would like to create several more series, other then famous drunks, before I think about a book. I did want to do a series of famous horror icons (Christopher Lee, Vincent Prince, etc), crime authors (Raymond Chandler, Jim Thompson, etc), and early blues and rock musicians (Son House, Charlie Patton, Elvis, etc.) The drunken portraits used an extra blue color, so each of the other series would be done in a different color. So, there is a bit of a way to go before I start thinking about a book. [more]
