    "Mail Order Ninja" in Tokyopop's RSOM #5 Top20

    Hey Everybody!

    Tokyopop's 5th Rising Stars of Manga competition is underway. Submissions ended Feb. 15 and now the selection process has begun. The 5th installment of RSOM is different, though. This time they are also including a People's Choice Award. Of all the submissions, the Tokyopop editors picked the top 20 finalists which will then be posted on their website for visitors to vote on. From these 20 finalists,the top 5 winners of the competition will be selected. Prizes for these winners include $$ and the opportunity to pitch a series for publication. A total of 8 stories (top 5 + 2 honorable mentions + the people's choice) will be selected to be published in an anthology and sold all over the world.

    The reason I'm posting is that I shared the first 5 pages with you back in November and now the project that Josh Elder and myself created, "Mail Order Ninja", has been selected in the top 20 and the entire story is posted on their website. Josh created and wrote the script and I did all the production work (layouts, pencils, inks, greyscale, letters).

    I would like to invite you to visit the Tokyopop website and vote for your favorite (preferably Mail Order Ninja )

    The voting runs 3/11 - 3/18

    Thanks,

    These are the 5 pages I shared in Nov.

    HAHHAHAHA havent laughed this much in awhile (then again i think stress is taking its toll on me, with my architectural school work's submission date looming) i really like it! It has a nice style (but does not look manga) and a healthy dose of humour. I like the part where hte kid's asking for money. What i like abt this is its readable without any dialog. I imagine this to have a musical score in the background

    Roxors my boxors...

    Great work, killer style (very Legend of Zelda: Windwaker) and a fun story!

    My only comment on improvement might be the last page... all you saw prior was the sword stick through the box but then you dont see him cutting out a peice. Possibly change the part where the kid is backing up to the ninja cutting out an image of himself.

    Long live the ninja!

    I can honestly say that yours was the best one man...I know this is a manga contest,but how come they can't do their own style. They can keep elements of manga,but they should put something new into the style instead of copying existing styles...anyways thats my rant about your competitors...your style was distinctly differnet and stood out. I liked the story very much,and I hope you win...

    I was a bit sceptical at first glance but as soon as I spotted your hands I knew this was no amateur work. Very cool, I wish you the best !
