Name: Barbara (translator @kokiden)

Age: 54

Blood Type/Sign: A positive/Aquarius/Dog

Hobby: Knitting and raising my pet teenaged girl

Comment: Love is the only thing better than a well-written sentence.




Name: Anne (translator @apricotsushi)

Age: 24

Blood Type/Sign: Rabbit/Sagittarius/O

Hobby: video games, crafting

Comment: You're sure to learn all about getting the creeps in due time, but it won't help you earn a living.




Name: Dutchie aka Kimbo. (editor @lostdutchie) Strangely, I was called "Tim" for years by my friend's dad. What does this mean?!

Age: Hippie Age (I wash my underwear religiously! Once a week! I swear!)

Blood Type/Sign: Oh! After a bloody battle, I admire the signs on Sesshoumaru's face. And Beast Inuyasha! My, that's rather fetching as well. Oh. That's not what you meant.

Hobby: I ponder important matters: would a "Cheer up Mishima Day" have helped Yukio? (Nah, Saint Sebastian cosplay: heaps more effective.)

When I'm feeling frisky, I set aside my grammar, punctuation and style manuals to read textbooks on: psychology; sexuality; and the history and structure of the comic art form.

To relax, I like to memorize lines from Ueda Akinari's Tales of Moonlight and Rain and Ihara Saikaku's Great Mirror of Male Love.

Then, I postulate on what would make Bunny cry. Tiger leaving him? Whipping him?

Comment: I've said too much.



Name: Alexandra (letterer @blbangbang)

Age: 25. Permanently.

Blood Type/Sign: Rawr~ I'm a twin tiger.

Hobby: Too busy digging myself out from under an avalanche of dirty books... that counts as traveling, right?

Comment: No attention paid to TPO, I enjoy reading dialogue aloud from comics while lettering. It's earned me a few perplexed stares at my local coffee shop. Whoops. Good thing I wear pants.


That's all from us (or is it?). Have a bangin' good week!

  1. OMFG. Look at us! LOOK AT US. We're all so fabulous in both mind and body! *dramatic pose*

    We should brainstorm what other cleverness we can post in this sensational new label, "bangin behind the scenes"!

    Thanks for this post, Al! <3 You, blonde goddess, you!
