New Li'l Mell!

Look! Back at last!

http://www.girlamatic.com/comics/mell.php

I haven't posted to LJ in a while, partly because Neil's been too busy with the lawyering to draw new Li'l Mell pages, and partly because I've been busy writing a book about CLAMP. Man, writing stuff takes forever.

In place of a proper post, here are RANDOM MANGA FACTS!

1. Back in their amateur days, CLAMP did fancomics based on Overlooked Manga Festival favorite JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, featuring the love child of male leads Jotaro Kujo and Noriaki Kakyoin. Fans have speculated that the CLAMP manga Wish is based on these fancomics, since the two leads in Wish look suspiciously like Jotaro and Noriaki. This is super awesome.

2. The creator of the manga Case Closed! was married for two years to the J-Pop singer who does the voice of Conan Edogawa in the anime. Wouldn't it be weird to be married to the person who plays your cartoon character? Especially if your character is a six-year-old boy? I probably shouldn't think too hard about this.

3. Manga Obama is poised to join The Parade of Manga Presidents, courtesy of Air Gear. I hope McCain has been alerted to the existence of a manga gap.
