Here’s to a cute new comic in town!  ‘Leek and Sushi’s Manga Show’ is an anthology from ITCH Publishing featuring work from a large selection of artists in the form of their entries to 2008’s ‘Manga Jiman’ competition, organised by the Japanese Embassy in the UK.

The theme to the competition was ‘150’, after 150 years of friendship between Britain and Japan, so its interesting to see how the different artists have tackled this subject in their own ways.  And what artists they are!  There is some top quality work in this book – just take a look at the preview page on ITCH’s website and you should be convinced.

The anthology is available online from the ITCH website shop, or look out for their table at events.  It’s a chunky little volume, printed at manga tankoubon size (which is around paperback size).

As you can probably tell from the photo I’ve already bought and read this one – just haven’t had time to write a more in-depth post about it – but needless to say, I heartily recommend it and there will be a full review ASAP.

Heads up, there’s a new comic now available in print from Speedlines Publishing – it’s an anthology called ‘Mangasm’ featuring, if you can’t guess from the title, a collection of manga-inspired comics.

Its available to buy from Speedlines or other reputable resalers such as Amazon.

Not much more to say as my copy is shipping as we speak, but I’m sure there will be more to talk about as soon as I have my hands on it ^_~
