Manga Farming turns old comic books into plants

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on April 12th, 2010

Manga Farming is an interesting art project from Koshi Kawachi that takes old manga (Japanese comic books) and turns them into potted plants. Because if you didn’t know, old, wet paper helps radish sprouts to grow.

He has several book-plants on display at the Matsuzakaya department store in Nagoya, if you want to drop by and have a look. Hopefully he didn’t use any super-valuable comics by accident.

Comics coming to the Nintendo Wii

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on July 24th, 2008

Comics coming to the Nintendo WiiSettle down now. I didn’t mention Batman or Spiderman, now did I? A Japanese joint venture between several comic loving entities will be distributing digital comic books to the Nintendo Wii through the Internet. Again, settle down. The service will be available to those in Japan only.

In fact, the digital content delivery service has already begun, and they are working on being able to transfer the data to the DS Lite platform down the road. This means that it’s only a matter of time until we can get actual Marvel or DC comics delivered to our Wii. And that is the most awesomest thing ever. But for now, just settle down.
