Interview: Annie Mok interviews Liz Suburbia about her debut graphic novel Sacred Heart.

Interview: Deb Aoki talks to the creators of the new Ultraman manga, Eiichi Shimizu and Tomohiro Shimoguchi. Shimizu talks about the difference between Ultraman and American superheroes: "[I]n the U.S. you have a lot of heroes who are adults, they’re already self-aware, and so they decide to follow the path of justice out of their own awareness, their own will. Whereas in Japan, through these teenage characters, they’re still young, they don’t just wake up and decide to fight for justice. So what we wanted to do was to show that path, the emotional and psychological path where the character learns about his powers and decides what to do with them."
