- Last week's Dish discussion evoked an interesting forum discussion about what makes the anime/manga style so recognizable. Join in the discussion here.
- That same discussion was spun off into a game of sorts in this thread. When you look at the posted pictures, do you immediately think "east" or "west" when it comes to the art style?
- The Dish needs more comics to review. Want yours reviewed? There's a thread for that.
- The Awesomer shares their list of the top 5 new features in Adobe's upcoming Photoshop CS5.
- Also from The Awesomer: a video of Japanese anime artist Yoshitoshi ABe sketching on the iPadwith his finger.
Nothing to see here. :(
If your comic (or a comic you know of) has an upcoming or recently reached milestone, let us know in this thread or send an email to email@example.com.
