Oni Brings Out The Midnight Mover - 20/11/2002
Forget U-Haul. This March, the only mover you need is MIDNIGHT MOVER, a four-issue miniseries by crime maestro Gary Phillips and his accomplices, artists Jeremy Love and Jeff Wasson. Featuring covers by HARLEY QUINN artist Mike Huddleston (THE COFFIN), this tale of sex and murder features the seedy world of the Los Angeles porn industry more commonly found on late night pay cable than in comic books.

“Gary Phillips isn’t like other comic writers,” said series editor James Lucas Jones. “He brings a different kind of wit, experience, and point-of-view to a North American comic scene that often seems stagnant. SHOT CALLERZ, his first comics work, brought the intensity and street-level brutality of his prose to a whole new audience. MIDNIGHT MOVER promises the same urban thrills and even crazier characters.” (Read More)

Hoshi No Koe Reviewed - 18/11/2002
Animerica Mag has posted an excellent review of Makoto Shinkai's ground-breaking independent film "Hoshi no Koe".
"The story of Hoshi no Koe takes place in the near future. A girl has been selected to become a pilot for a battle robot, and she is sent to travel far away from the solar system. Her boyfriend is left behind on Earth, and their innocent relationship develops by writing to each other via a type of e-mail. The film's gimmick is that the farther away the girl travels, the longer it takes for the mail to arrive. At first, the mail can be exchanged almost instantly. But then, it takes several days to arrive, then weeks, then months and eventually even years. The time lag begins to come between their understanding of the two characters."
Hoshi no Koe has been licensed for U.S. release through ADV Films under the title "The Voices of a Distant Star". For a sneak peek at the upcoming release, see the trailer on the (Japanese only) website: www.hoshinokoe.com.

Battle Royale Novel in February - 4/11/2002
Viz Communications today announced its February 2003 release of Battle Royale by Koushun Takami. A brutal, high-octane thriller, the novel touched a nerve in Japan where, like post-Columbine America, senseless youth violence dominated headlines. As a result, Battle Royale became a runaway best seller and is now available for the first time in English from Viz as a 504-page novel for only $15.95 US.

Told in breathless, blow-by-blow fashion, Battle Royale—a cross between the Survivor reality TV show and Stephen King's The Running Man—starts with an irresistible premise: each year, a randomly selected class of high school students is taken to a deserted island, where each is given a map, food, water and a weapon. As part of a ruthless authoritarian program, the students are required to wear special collars, which will explode when they break a rule, and are then forced to fight each other to the death for three days until only one survivor remains.
