Now that looks *really* nice. I don't care much for the other King Tractor titles I've seen so far, but if that book manages to keep up this style and pair it with an interesting story, it'll be a must-have.
it reminds me of a studio ghibli film, but no name comes to mind, o yea it reminds me of spirited away, the girl to me looks similar

this looks really smooth! Who's writing; what's the script like? Me, it reminds me of Akiko (which I miss--where are you Mark Crilley?!), and I certainly hope it's got the same high quality writing to match the obvious beauty of the graphics.
Devil Water 2 and Family Bones 2 are on my preorder, as well...

Nippon is written by David Berman. He's actually a comedian and filmmaker (directed some shows, stand-up, TV & Film etc.) but he had this story which is unlike anything he normally does. So I annoyed him enough to let me give it a go. I got Michael on board and so far so good.
Althalus - Sorry we haven't been a big hit with you, but hopefully you'll like some of our 2007 offerings. While Family Bones and Devil Water should be finishing up their runs, we'll be starting four new titles in '07. Nippon is just the first. As I did with ALECTO, I'm also working on at least one European License for '07 from a successful British writer.
Thanks all for checking us out.

A new page is up. I'm hoping to have a sample book ready for the NY Con. Come by the SUMM & King Tractor Press table to see if copies are available.
Those pages are beautiful. Exactly the type of comics that I'm reading these days.
Hopefully I'll read the book someday!

So, any news? NYCC is long past. Was the book presented there? Did it do well?
