Koloni Jagoan 5: Blade Bunny © Eric Kimball and Erwin Prasetya
Published by Gramedia/m&c!
Blade Bunny, the collaboration between American writer Eric Kimball and Indonesian comic artist Erwin Prasetya, tells the story of a sassy but deadly ninja as he/she/it faces off against a samurai clan and killer robots.
The fifth Koloni Jagoan also includes a new installment of C. Suryo Laksono's
SEER: The Genchildren. A covert government agency sends a group of Indonesian children into the future to "save Indonesia." The kids are separated and land in different times and places; one of them, Abi, touches down in a country where the robots are masters and the humans, slaves. Abi, together with Tio, another Indonesian and the child of a tofu vendor, leads the human resistance against the mechanical despots.
The third story is
Prajurit Dewa: Hero After Death by Hendrianto P.P. Long, long ago, the heavens were thrown in a frenzy by a savage demon with powers rivaling those of a god. A supernal trio casts a forbidden spell to create an equally vicious demon, Garuda, the invincible warrior god. Thousands of years hence, a new power awakens, a power that humans would kill for.
Now on to the manga side —
Spray King vol 4 of 4
By Mikuni Shin
The “lust”-driven battle peaks, forcing Spray King to cover the entire city with graffiti. But can Spray King protect all of Kotobuki's districts against The Boss?
New m&c! titles

Mangazines: Cherry 59/2011
m&c! hypes the ending of Ichikawa Show's I Love Dog and You and Nakamura Sayumi's Always by Your Side in the latest Cherry. I assume the final I Love Dog and You is the the second of two Inu Jikan one-shots,
Himitsu no Chikara, as the first—
Sweet Love or
Amakuchi Koigokoro—appeared in Cherry 58. I likewise assume that the last Always by Your Side is also a one-shot off Itsumo Soba ni Koi no Uta because Issue 58 featured the
Addicted to Love (
Koi no Mayaku) extra story.
