man...what the hell?
Guess what supposedly came out yesterday?
and guess what NONE of the comic shops near me had in stock??
OCTOPUS GIRL 2!! I've been dying to read this since a few months ago, when Evan lent me the first book. It's an insane, satirical, beautiful take on horror AND gag manga that manages to pull off hilarious panels AND truly freaky/scary shit--- often right in succesion! This is definitely one of the best manga releases of 2006. (Thank you Dark Horse and new awesome editor supreme Robert Simpson!) You have noticed that Dark Horse is putting out the majority of the cool, new horror manga this summer, right? Has anyone else read Octopus Girl? What did you think??
Click here to check out (and read a short preview of) Octopus Girl Vol.1
PS: I do believe a certain ex-Viz editor, comic writer/illustrator has my copy of Octopus Girl Vol. 1 in his possession, aHEM :)
EDIT: Still no sign of Octopus Girl 2... But here is a pic from the upcoming Octopus Girl 3 this fall!
