Watch Six Comic Artists Go To Japan (And Immediately Start Shopping For Comics) In A Video Travelogue


If you had to guess what six comic book artists would do first on a trip to Tokyo, you might feel there were just too many choices to narrow it down. It's a big city with a lot of history and a huge number of tourist destinations, from the culture to the food. But then you'd probably remember that you're talking about people in comics, and then you'd realize that of course the first thing they're going to do is go shopping for manga.

That, at least, is the impression that I got from watching a video from Felix Comic Art, a company dealing in original pages, that took six of its artists on a trip to Tokyo last month and documented the entire thing in a fun little ten-minute travelogue.

Hear The Good Word In ‘East of West’ #5 [Preview]

East of West

Though sci-fi comics have enjoyed a renaissance of late, the sci-fi western genre, if such a thing exists, is certainly not one dominating the shelves. But East Of West, the Image Comics series from Jonathan Hickman and Nick Dragotta, has been one of the more successful and celebrated new series of 2013. East Of West features an alternate history tale of a technologically advanced American frontier, due to a Celestial event at the end of the Civil War. Now the country is teetering on the edge of disaster, as the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse attempt to kill the President of the United States. Hickman writes a tale that gives ample opportunity to Dragotta and colorist Frank Martin to create everything from robotic steeds to the image of the four horsemen clawing their way through dirt, bone and metal.

In issue #5 of the hit series, the contents of the apocrypha are revealed, and it may or may not predict the end of the world. East Of West #5 arrives in stores next week, and Image Comics has provided ComicsAlliance with a preview, which you can check out after the cut.
