In Sore Thumbs we have yet another Manga with a theme around video games. How this one steals the spotlight is by not only focusing on games but by adding topographical and social humor. This seemingly fresh strip is written by Owen Gieni and Chris Crosby and focuses around the antics of the sister and brother Cecania and Fairbanks and Cecania’s friend Harmony. These antics occur in a, wait give it a minute….
Yes, it’s a video game store called Sore Thumbs. The artwork is fantastic with each main character a different extreme manga stereotype. Despite the excellent pencil work I still dislike the over use of the manga outlandish expressions which can be abundant at times. The story line keeps up the mocking with a game store moving in across the street, a boyfriend with missing valuables, and bear which can beat Ninja Gaiden and Devil May Dry 3 at the exact same time. This is a high quality that almost any comic fan should enjoy.
