FILE5 UNSEEN –
Dr. Mordrid journeys to investigate an ancient gold tablet, only to be met by an empty town…
The year is 1897, the era of the Wild West. Doctor Mordrid may be the scientific community’s outcast, but his unique skills as an archaeologist specializing in occult cases are second to none and begrudgingly recognized by most. With his trusty animal sidekick Kim and more than a few (mechanized) tricks up his sleeve, Doctor Mordrid sets forth to investigate incredible happenings on the American Frontier.

Akiko tries to reason with her father. Has she truly given up on their plans, or…?

A great terror descends over the town, and there may be no one left to stop it.
A story of a dog and a boy but not in the ways one may think. The only things the dog Inugami knows about himself and his past are his abilities to heal quickly, grow blades from his back, and that someone somewhere once told him to watch over humanity. Being surrounded by humans who yearn to capture his powers for their own ulterior motives makes him question what use there is in protecting such a terrible species…until he stumbles upon the young man Fumiki in an abandoned building and becomes his friend.

On opposing sides of the coin are successor to the throne Prince Jimsa, now part of the resistance, and Affle, his long lost twin sister. As fate brings them together, it also draws them closer to their climactic fight alongside the female cyborg warrior Il.

Haunted Tours, Cont. – Ghost Notes #2
Hokazono-sensei tells us about when he started getting interested in horror.
A collection of four-panel comics where Masaya Hokazono talks about the toils and travails of being a horror manga artist. In this light-hearted romp through his day job, he tackles things such as reader-submitted ghost stories, the terrors of social media disapproval, hospital experiences, real fake psychics, and what may be the scariest things of all – his fellows in the horror manga industry!
A Metal Whale’s Dream –
Spurred on by vague promises of treasure, the boys find a way to return a flying whale to its sky.
On the planet Raguna, there is a music festival. With Leader at its helm, the musical group “Karriot” is brought to life by Gaia’s organ, Freya’s guitar, Seiichiro’s mandolin, and Nathaniel’s pipe…but his pipe isn’t just any ordinary pipe! The legend says of the Clausel pipe that “If you play the pipe on the night of Pavana, the moon shall be alight as the stars dance in delight.” But what does this mean, exactly…? In Masaya Hokazono’s sci-fi fantasy done in the style of legends, these mushroom man friends encounter falling stars, destroyed moons, and the cycle of life, death, and rebirth itself!

Only the Gaira Six Poets, a group of genetically enhanced humans led by “pipe walker” Zenkyo, can have a chance of standing in their way. A futuristic cult classic predating the cyberpunk boom in Japan!
