Animefringe: August 2001

Well gang, the glorious month of August arriveth, and with it our traditional slew of July's con coverage -- this time around we're pleased to bring you con coverage that's not only exclusive and unique but also not boring as hell! Whether you were one of the attendees at Anime Expo 2001, ComicCon 2001, both or neither, be sure to read Animefringe's take on last month's "unique" California con experience. We also had the honor to talk in-depth with one of Japan and America's talented manga artists, Kia Asamiya.

Kia Asamiya - The Veil of Secrecy is Lifted!

Kia Asamiya, the artist behind such prolific mangas as Silent Möbius, Dark Angel and Steam Detectives, has earned a reputation not only for his awesome skill and varied drawing style, but also for being rather reclusive over the years he's been so well-known on both sides of the Pacific. Well, when Jake, our ever-vigilant and dedicated Animefringe reporter on the scene at Anime Expo had a chance to speak with him, he didn't hold back! This is an interview no Asamiya fan would wanna miss!

Well, a new company called ComicsOne has their sights set to deliver e-manga to the masses, and Adam had the opportunity to talk to them about just what they do and how they do it.
