Manga... and some sad news

Went to Orbital Manga comic shop today, for Ed 'Ilya' Hilyer's 'Best of Manga' signing and met some great manga artists. Met Ivy ling... she draws under the name Rainbow Buddy and her work is just great. Check her stuff out.

Sadly... I received an email about UK comic stalwart Steve Whitaker passing away. Steve's been unwell for awhile now... and I'd not seen him for years, but used to run into him a lot at UKCAC shows years past. A lovely guy, and big Jack Kirby fan. He was a great colourist and one of Comics unsung gems.

Raise a glass to Steve.... sorely missed. One of the good guys.
