You know the story of Red Riding Hood? Well take Red, throw a samurai sword in her hand and instead of a wolf give her a demon, and you have Akanerio!
Kani – a child not accepted by her village because she is half Ainu and will not accept the old ways – is chosen to be a Liaison between the Ainu and The Red Hunters, an order who hunts the demons outside of the village. As she begins her journey to The Red Hunters Village for training, she happens upon a mysterious man… wolf… demon… who gives her directions right into Grandma’s house.
The artwork, while remaining in neutral tones, gives way to such detail. From the expression and emotion in each character’s eye, to the stubble on Kani’s Father’s face; you can feel the emotion in the panels. Heavy lines give way to soft colors for the surrounding environment highlighting the natural colors of the forest while at the same time outlining the dark colors of the evil within. I look forward to both the story and the artwork in the next installment.
Be sure to look for Akaneiro, out this Wednesday from Dark Horse Comics at a comic shop near you!

Sony may have not shown the actual console during their big reveal a few months back, but their timing of the below teaser is impeccable On the eve of the next Xbox event, Sony released this little video showing off rapid fire close-ups of certain aspects of their new console due out this holiday season. All the while, a blurry box moves ever closer in the background. Fortunately, those lovable scamps at imgur got some screen grabs for us. June can’t get here soon enough.

While roaming aimlessly… I mean, um, working… at C2E2, I came across a woman drawing. As I flipped through her book of work, I stopped on a page and instantly fell in love – there was a Pin-Up drawing of all my favorite horror characters. I knew right then I had to talk to – and interview – this fantastic lady! Becca Whitaker, creator of Becca’s Bombshells, was more than happy to oblige!
