New York Magazine's online-only Comics Page is continuing to introduce readers to what it calls "the best [new] titles the exploding comics world has to offer" by offering an exclusive preview of Tokyopop's world manga Undertown. Written by veteran comics writer Jim Pascoe and illustrated by Jake Miles, who is best known for creating artwork for Lord of the Rings and Star Wars collector's cards, this is a fantasy story about a ten-year-old who enters a magical world on a quest to find a magical object that may help his ailing father.
Recently, the Comics Page section has featured excerpts from Alive, published by Del Rey, and Osamu Tezuka's Apollo's Song, which is being released by Vertical Publishing.
