Only the Ring Finger Knows, vol 3
By Satoru Kannagi
Translated by Duane Johnson
Published by the Juné Imprint of Digital Manga, Inc.
Review by Ginger Mayerson
I love these novels... I love these novels... I love these novels... I love these two novels (actually, they're novellas if that applies) that make up OTRFK 3 - "The Ring Finger Falls Silent" and "Your Confession in Both Hands" - very much. These titles puzzle me a little, they're so much more lurid than what goes on in the books, but that didn't interfere with my enjoyment of the stories. Nothing could interfere with my enjoyment of these stories. And just to prove how tough I am, I have "Apocalypse Now" going in the background and it's not even interfering with my enjoyment of writing this review. Because... I love these novels... They make me happy. [more]

The Homeless Channel
by Matt Silady
Sunday Morning Comics
Review by Leigh Anne Wilson
When I was about thirteen or fourteen, I overheard my tennis coach, Mark, and his assistant, Tim, talking about a girl who had just stopped by the front desk at the tennis center to schedule a lesson.
"Do you think she's pretty?" asked Mark after she left. "I can't tell."
"Mmm, I don't know," said Tim. "I think she just missed."
I have no idea why this little snippet of conversation stuck around in my brain for 23 years, unless it stayed specifically to provide me with an apt analogy for what I feel about Matt Silady's graphic serial novel The Homeless Channel. [more]

Interview with Toko Kawai
I was lucky enough to sit down with Ms. Kawai and her editor at Libre, Ms. Toshiko Maki, on October 19, 2006, right before Yaoi-con (which I was not able to attend [yes, the wound still aches]). This interview was superbly translated by Ms. Amelia Cantlay, courtesy of Digital Manga, Inc., for yours truly and my trusty tape recorder in DMI HQ's spacious conference room with its lovely panoramic views of Gardena, California.
Interview by Ginger Mayerson
Ginger Mayerson: This is kind of a funny question to start with, but do you speak French?
Toko Kawai: No, I don't know French.
GM: I ask because there are so many references to France and French words in "Our Everlasting" that I was wondering.
TK: I have a bi-lingual friend and she gave me advice on the French parts.
GM: I'm not bi-lingual, but I do understand French and the French in the books was very well done. I was impressed.
TK: Thank you.
GM: What are you working on these days? [more]
