World Trigger
by Daisuke Ashihara
More history about Yuma's father is revealed, including the fact that he was one of the founding members of Border. And it turns out, Border has it's share of problems including many high-ranking members who have their own ideas on how the organization should be run. Although they may have different reasons, one thing's for sure—they all want to get their hands on Yuma!

Dragon Ball
by Akira Toriyama
The Saiyans have landed! And promptly blown up a huge part of the the world! This chapter cracks me up, especially Vegeta chastising Nappa for being an idiot and blowing up a chunk of the planet, thus lowering the value for resale. I love how dumb Nappa is, and how many times Vegeta has to come down on him. Funny stuff!

I had to read that Cross Manage chapter twice! A very tragic turn of events and very melancholy. I didn't even expect it to take that direction. Very surprising.

So, how far is anybody else in their SJ entry?

My page 1 is starting to look like a manga now.

The last pic I showed before looked awful. I had to stop and recollect myself. For example, had to find the best settings for inking the manga digitally since I had erased my old settings experimenting a while back. So I drew under many different settings to get the right one before going back to work on page 1.
