Hachi Maru Hachi: Signed, sealed, delivered

June 2nd, 2010

When I last signed off Cel Shaded on May 23, I said I was going on vacation. Technically, I’m still on vacation, having just returned from a week-long stay in San Jose, Calif., sightseeing and attending FanimeCon while I was there. You’ll get to see a short wrap-up of what I did there … umm … eventually. Vacation, after all.

There is, however, something coming up locally in a few days that I wanted to highlight. A few of the creators from local manga/short story anthology Hachi Maru Hachi — specifically, artists Mia Baek (“Where Unknown”), Tara Tamayori (“Eternal Blade”) and Hanson Weng (“Gateway to Eden”), and writer Brad Tanabe (“Kotae wa Ramen no Naka Ni”) — will be signing copies of the first issue from 3 to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Barnes and Noble at Kahala Mall. I was a bit disappointed to learn recently that the second issue has been delayed indefinitely until sales of the first issue reach a more acceptable level (subscriptions were also refunded accordingly), so this is a great way to turn out and support local artists in Hawaii.
