I can't believe I missed this before but Adongshik had a oneshot in issue 2 of Gessan called 'Ebisuko'. Its about sumo wrestling. His (or her?) art is still pretty awesome. Though what's most important is that at the end it specifically says that his (or her) next work will be appearing 'soon'. Not just the generic 'look forward to the next series' message you get on these things. So a new Adongshik series may be upon us!
Makes sense since Kirisaki Walter, Tokisaka-san and Aooni all ended this issue..Tokisaka had been advertised to end for a little while now so that didn't surprise me, but Aooni and Walter really blind-sided me. Though neither were particularily memorable so I guess it sucks to be them. Tokisaka had an interesting message at the end too..rather than 'look forward to Tanaka-san's newest work!', it says more like 'Be sure to watch out for Tanaka's activity from here on in!' Seems to me that he (or she) doesn't intend to return to Shogakukan or something. Hmm...
Also Gessan Mini was advertised in this month's issue, and I'm happy to say Moritya is on the list of artists contributing. Nice to see that he hasn't given up despite his twitter and blog closing up shop. His first contribution was an action Christmas story, and his second a short gag thing. I hope he sticks to action though, his style contributes itself more to that.
Next issue features A one shot by Narumi Amiya and Ooyagi Takao. Takao was the author of 'El palicio' and Amiya did the short serial 'Gin no ou'. Over drive gets a color page as well as Ayashia and Asagiro. Sakoro gets a color page as well. Sorry to have not updated this thing but motivation often escapes me. There was a lot of news this time around though so I figured I'd news dump here since Heiji or some of the other news people weren't.
