Noir poster


Originally these pictures were to be used for covers in a new graphic novel series about American otaku who become superheroes, they I feel now have a greater calling. I feel as an anime fan and artist something must be done to help the nation of Japan. A place we revere for its culture both traditional and popular, and for the inspiration its animated and comic art has ignited in many an artist from around the world. All most every artist I know now a day that urn to be a cartoonist in any capacity does so because of the influence they have received from Japan. We may not be able to save the world, but we can at least help bring some rays of light back to the land of the rising sun. Humanity is watching let us not waver it is time for the otaku of the world to show that we can be more than a bunch of internet jockeys and coach potatoes. That we are greater than the sum of our collective interests, OTAKU UNITE.    

 Proceeds go to the relief efforts for Japan.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
