Online app Comico is bringing manga readers and writers alike into the 21st century. With a library that includes Nanbaka and Recovery of an MMO Junkie, the app offers tons of reading material for fans of manga and light novels. And they’re helping new artists get their start thanks to their contests!
In fact, one of their winners is making their debut — and you can see it online.
National Student Championship
Every year, Comico runs a contest to discover new talent among school-age creators. Winners will make their manga debut on the app, and break into the world of professional art.
In 2016, artist Kishiwo made the cut, and it’s no surprise. Kishiwo’s art has a comfortable, traditional style to it that draws the reader’s eye. But the artist’s coloring technique is also gorgeous, lending an unexpected softness to the work.
The editors at Comico are excited about Kishiwo’s new work, and believe it will draw in new readers quickly.
Distance Without A Name
Kishiwo’s manga, Namae no nai Kyouri., is a love story with a twist. Our heroine, a thirty-something woman, struggles with finding love due to past trauma. But that all starts to change when she meets a high school boy.
