Oh and on a comic note - the film is adapted from a manga of the same name that was published a few years back...I hope the success of the film will get the manga translated for an English audience.

There's a bootleg of it on eBay. http://stores.ebay.com/Cannibal-King-DVD_W0QQsspagenameZl2QQtZkm The seller is a guy I buy dvds from all the time and has high quality stuff. I know pirating is bad but sometimes it's the only way you get to see a movie like this. I hear though that Old Boy may get a...

I have a soft spot for this director - NAKANO Hiroyuki. Even if his films have been kind of hit or miss, they all have their moments (with memorable characters like elderly ninjas) and are enjoyable visually. If you can check them out, he also did "Aka Kage" (Red Shadow, a ninja movie), "Stereo Futu...

I read just about anything but I tend to collect vintage children's books and art portfolios, on top of graphic novels especially 60's and current shoujo manga. The books I tend to find myself giving as gifts are on the harder to find end of thi...

Is that Jason Shiga eating sushi with you? His comics are neat. A lot of SF's comic talent came out to the reception :) (less than subliminal message - KAZU and Co., YOU MUST MOVE TO SF!!!) :wink: Thank you Thien Pham, Lark Pien, Jesse Hamm, and Jason for their support and the signing of an occasio...

Kazu, Erika, Enrico, Chris, Derek - It was great meeting you or seeing you again! Except for Derek - I think he's stalking us at the store or he's just there whenever we have free food. ;) But seriously, I cannot thank you all enough for your time and talent gracing our walls and shelves. The signed...
