Q&A: 'Atomic King Daidogan' creator Nathan Maurer

Comic Book Bin chats with Nathan Maurer, grand prize winner of Tokyopop's Rising Stars of Manga 3, and creator of the upcoming Atomic King Daidogan series:

"Because (for the most part) manga doesn't focus so much on obsessively detailed artwork, it's far more effective at conveying movement and expression than, say, most superhero comics. It feels much more like animation put to the page, and I find that very appealing. Eiichiro Oda's One Piece is a perfect example of this. The art is absolutely bursting with energy, and it's a hilariously entertaining story to boot. Awesome."
