South China Morning Post.

The Hong Kong based newspaper ‘The South China Morning Post’ will feature an interview with me (or someone who looks a lot like me anyway) s. I discuss The Story of Lee a lot in that. Of course, because the story is SET in HK! That is coming out the first week of 2011 i think.

I’m looking forward to seeing The Story of Lee book itself – its on the way to me now. This will be my 15th published book so far, but the joy of seeing the finished book is still with me – and hopefully always will be!

My other book ‘Ax:alternative manga’ continues to do really well. I was just listed as UK chain store Forbidden Planet’s best manga of 2010, and critic Deb Aoki noted that no less then TEN critics lists feature it – making it, by her count, the 4th most highly praised book of all manga published this
