Comickers like us

CWR checks out the surprisingly insightful Tramps Like Us.

Bill @ PCG investigates CMX's proclivity for licensing older manga titles -- namely, From Eroica With Love -- and finds that old stuff doesn't turn out all that bad sometimes.

Okay, seriously, where can I buy a copy of Ikki? Or Garo, for that matter? For all the diversity of manga, it seems that the Japanese bookstores in my area don't stock the artcomix end of it.

So, Korea is getting into comic-book movies too.

And in the Kansai region of Japan, you CAN major in manga when you go to college.

I haven't seen the other two mentioned, but Old Boy is just incredible. I've heard from several sources that the movie is superior to the original manga, which I can believe since it is one of my all-time favorite movies. I'll have to grab the manga at some point to compare, though...
