Hey Tay! Whats going on? Decemberween is a mere week away, and more importantly, the Secret SanTay Day is near! So exciting.
Looking over to my bookshelf, I notice one of my favorite short manga series: Dramacon. Dramacon is basically a 3 volume original English language manga created by Svetlana Chmakova and Published by Tokyopop. It follows the story of web manga writer Christie as she goes to a anime covention for the first time with some friends (and the next 2 years at the con in the following volumes). As the name would suggest there is much drama, and much convention. It is by far, a mostly spot on sampling of the con life and is just a great story overall. I highly suggest finding the Ultimate edition if you can, it is a larger sized hardcover edition that compiles all 3 volumes, plus an extra after story and some fanarts and things afterward.
I also notice Maximum Ride which is a Manga adaption of the James Patterson novels illustrated by Narae Lee. Which brings me to my question for the night:
Do you have any favorite media that is based of something from somewhere else? For example (Dramacon being a English made Manga, or Max Ride being a American Novel, Manga-ized by a Korean Artist.)
For tonight’s jam, I’m throwing down a Christmas related song, and one non related one for those who don’t care much for the X-mas music.
