DRUNKEN MASTER #12: $7 ppd. (no trades), 8½” x 11”, offset w/ full color cover, 68 pgs.

Beautifully printed collection of Lucky Nakazawa’s comics. A few pages are made up of his one page Won Ton Not Now work (as seen here in the ‘Cake), but the majority is taken up by longer pieces, including one about an MMA fight and a kung-fu-practicing janitor. There are a few guest spots taken up by other artists and a lengthy interview with Josh Barnett, who is apparently a big name in the mixed martial arts world. Knowing nothing about MMA fighting, manga or, really, anything covered in here, I still found it a reasonably interesting read with some very nice illustrations throughout. The comics themselves are generally too silly and nonsensical for me, but there’s no denying that Nakazawa can certainly draw. –Keith Rosson (Lucky Nakazawa, 3324 Rowena Ave. Apt. A, LA, CA 90027)
