Shameless self-promotion time!

I haven't published a new blog post in around a week as I've been a bit busy working on a few other projects. What are these projects, you ask? Webcomics! So get ready for some shameless self-promotion as I tell you about these wonderful projects that you'll surely want to read (I hope).

Throwback Ad Thursday: Manga Video DVDs

With ADV Films, Funimation, Bandai, and all the other anime distributors of the early '00s, it's sometimes easy to forget what a great anime catalog Manga Video had. Despite many of these titles being re-released in recent years, I've still kept a number of the original Manga Video DVD releases, including Castle of Cagliostro, Ghost in the Shell, Ninja Scroll (the 10th anniversary edition), Perfect Blue, Blood: The Last Vampire, and both of the Evangelion films.

Throwback Ad Tuesday: Robotech Comic Mini-Series (WildStorm)

Harmony Gold partnered with comic publisher WildStorm in 2002 to release a six-issue Robotech mini-series (not counting a special issue #0), titled From the Stars. The series served as a prequel to the anime, but not only contradicted parts of the show, it also retconned elements of the fan-favorite Jack McKinney Robotech novels. WildStorm followed the series up with several other Robotech comics, the most worthwhile being the 2003 Robotech Sourcebook, covering all the main characters and mecha.
