08.08.2006: The Industry gets reviewed on Drake Comics. The only catch's all in Spanish! ¡Ja ja ja ja! Basically, they say some nice things about my style ("la sinceridad creativa de Jones me convenció y me hace pensar que el producto de la invasión japonesa será algo más que los cientos de métodos idiotas de 'Como dibujar manga'"), recommend The Industry to your little sisters, and call me weird ("una de esas extrañas ñiñas a las que les gustan los cómics"). Thanks, Drake Comics! 8D
