Flex Comix Flare is sister online "magazine" to Flex Comix Blood

The Yahoo! Comics Japan website has launched Flex Comix Flare, a free online manga "magazine" aimed at women, on October 18. The two inaugural titles are Kanashi no Homura: Yume Maboroshi no Gotoku, Eri Motomura's historical epic set in Japan's feudal era, and Nariyuki Mystery Club, Makoto Hasebe's one-shot high school slapstick comedy.

Sayonara Boku no Ryū (Farewell, My Dragon), Koh Karakemi's story of a mountain village boy and his half-dragon, starts October 25, and Riegienda Monogatari (The Story of Riegienda), Naoko Moto's fantasy of a magical tea shop — literally named "Magical" — in the town of Riegienda, starts on November 1. Motonomoto no Ana no Naka, Taka Amano's Japanese-style fantasy about a boy's encounter with a mysterious figure in a library, completes the lineup on November 8.

The magazine is a sister publication of Flex Comix Blood from the Japanese publisher Flex Comix, which signed a partnership with American publisher DC Comics earlier this year. The Flex Comix Flare site requires a Microsoft Windows version of Internet Explorer 5 or higher for browsing the manga.
