No, no. That's Lame. Sounds like something out of a Jodorowsky comic.

The Tokusyu Manga Club - Features alternative comics/avant-garde comics/outsider comics/psychdelic comics/surrealistic comics/underground comics + La Nouvelle Manga (part of Alternative).

If I'm here, its because I have nothing better to do.

I really like this blog: http://www.sleepisfortheweak.org/

They sometimes come off as overly critical and negative, but I think what they say has merit to it. I don't always agree, but that's okay. :) I discovered Kinou Nani Tabeta?! after reading their mini review. Their updates are rather nonexistent now, but there's good backlog to look at. And they blog raw stuff <3
