The Way to Your Heart Comic Review

The Way to You Heart © Emily Wilcken 


"Visual kei inspired manga about a girl prodigy named Yumi who literally bumps into the lives of a rising J-rock band named Orochi. As they're suddenly thrust into the same world, emotions run wild in a torrent of teenage angst and passion."

The story revolves around Yumi a girl who bumps into a J-rock band named Orochi. Now don't start thinking "Oh no not another Shoujo manga" This one is different. Well, not really its shoujo but its the finest that I've seen online. The characters are engaging and you won't believe the plot. Think Shakespeare's Veronica twist. Its like that, except no transvestites (at least not yet. It is Shoujo after all). Also, it has a compelling love and hate story between the main characters.

I have to admit in a few parts its a bit too, Fluff and the main character's action is pretty much driven by events rather than motive.

However; overall the story and art is beautiful and worth a mad (9/10)

My comic Process: Step one Sketch

I'm working on two pages at the same time now. Since I take so long drawing one page I think I'll be able to do better with two pages at a time. Also, I think it might help with the flow of the comic.

The pages were drawn on 8x11 in paper in pen ink. The reason why I sketch in pen ink is because it forces me to focus on drawing the page. For some reason when I draw with a pencil I have a tendency to erase which is bad.

07202008 sketch

where do I go from here
I see my way
I follow.
Trying to accomplish a goal.
I don't quite believe in
I do not know
I then failed
I want it.
I want this
More than anything
Why do I follow
A dream
I do not know.

Best Free Graphics Software

Gimp - Platforms: Windows XP/Vista, Mac OS, Linux Distributions

Who uses it? Artist, Photographers and amateurs alike. The GIMP is an image editors that some have compared as an alternative to Photoshop then looking for an image editor. I've found myself using this program more and more because it loads so fast on my computer and has all the basic tools of Photoshop. I've used this to tone My comic Crystal Dream.

Inkscape - Windows XP/Vista, Mac OS, Linux Distributions

Who uses it? Artist, Engineers, Web designers,
Why use it? Its also free, plus its one of the most simple est vector editors out there to use. I also use this for my inking. The GUI is simple an uncluttered.

Paint net - Windows XP/Vista, Mac OS, Linux Distributions

Who uses it? Artist, Photographers and amatures alike.
Why use it? Many people find the GIMP overwhelming sometimes so they choose Paint.net as an alternative due to the fact the interface is similar to photoshop.

Art Rage- Windows XP/Vista, Mac OS

Who uses it? Artist
Why use it? The best thing about this program is its interface. Its very different yet quite relaxing to use. The program itself simulates natural painting. Currently it does not support watercolors but when you need a cheep to free (free does not have layer support) to Corel Painter this would be it. This is a wonderful program to open up to relax and draw. I loved it so much that I bought the full program, which is $25.00.

Art Weaver - Windows XP/Vista, Mac OS, Linux Distributions (Using Wine)

Who uses it? Artist, Photographers
Why use it? Similar to ArtRage however the interface looks more like Painter plus with the support of layers for free.

Google SketchUp
- Windows XP/Vista, Mac OS, Linux Distributions

Who uses it? Artist, Engineers, and Drafters
Why use it? Compared to similar looking CAD software this is the easyest to use and requires less resources on you computer. The free version is limited comparted to the full on for about 300 UDS. However, I hear the full version is free for students. Awesome.

Jack Frost Updated!



I've waited months for this manwa to be updated! What I like most about Jack Frost is the Art is so clean. (Typical of most action manwa)


Jack Frost follows the story of Junoa, the new student at the creepy Amityville High School. Things start off rather poorly for Junoa as she quickly comes to realize that the school is not as it appears. Caught in an interschool war between Vampires, Monsters and other things that go bump in the night, she must quickly learn what her new role is, as the "mirror image," and how to handle the mysterious Jack Frost. - One Manga

I heard that this is the last scans of Jack Frost that Meep Scans will be doing due to the serial being licensed  in the United States by Yen Press.

Publishing Dates at Yen Press

JACK FROST Volume 1 | Coming May 2009  

JACK FROST Volume 2 | Coming November 2009
