"Somewhere Between Insanity and Your Left Shoe"

“Somewhere Between Insanity and Your Left Shoe”

BY ASSISTANT EDITOR PAYPABAK WRITER During my explorations following various Manga-themed leads, I came across an island cohabited by Shapeshifter Studios (Total Shift) and Kinzart Keetures (KzK) who are more in the line of Furry avatars than Manga. The former had some interesting dinosaur shaped avatars, while the latter has very well done canine, feline, […]

Manga-inspired Avatars: Part One

Manga-inspired Avatars: Part One

BY ASSISTANT EDITOR PAYPABAK WRITER I probably know just enough about Manga to be dangerous. I know these Japanese graphic novels are in all the major bookstore chains and that you read some of them in the opposite direction than a regular book. Animated movies and television series abound, so that’s plenty of reason for […]

Zombie Apocalypse

Zombie Apocalypse

BY CHIEF STAFF WRITER PAYPABAK WRITER My article on hunting rattled a landmark from a reader, and who could resist visiting a place called Highschool of the Dead? Apparently based on a popular anime/manga series turned TV series, HOTD (as it is abbreviated) involves Zombies! and the brave highschoolers who are fighting back. Or maybe […]

BY CHIEF STAFF WRITER PAYPABAK WRITER I’ve been involved in a kind of initiation that friend Judy has me going through. One of the ordeals has been to wear a combat meter and my SteamBow and spend time in Twlight Forest. I’ve listed some of the other areas I’ve visited, too, as well as provided […]

The Kat's Meow

The Kat’s Meow

BY CHIEF STAFF WRITER PAYPABAK WRITER I keep running into Katrina Pugilist at various parties where good friends Vannesh Cannoli and Sasara Klaar are hosting or attending. I get free samples of her designs, so I decided to vist her store and take a look for a write up. Kat specializes in costumes and avatars […]

The moment […]
