Goldorak Go! Man, as a kid I lived for this show. And of course I had the action figures (of various sizes), the theme song record and a huge cardboard cutout type of deal on my bedroom wall. Good times.
I stumbled into a project on Twitter last night which brought back those pleasant memories and also reminded me of a book I tried earlier this year, Nitro Battlers.
The book is the creation of Toronto's Eric Kim. He manages Inkskratch Publishing and the Manga Dojo program by which he teaches kids to make comics. You can purchase Nitro Battlers #1 on Comixology for a buck or directly from Inkskratch in either print or pdf format.
Now there aren't a lot of details available to me yet about the project I saw on Twitter last night which prompted this post, but it doesn't take much to see how it fits right in. Allow me to introduce Steve Beaulieu's Canadian Cindy, a "new series about a Canadian heroine and her beaver robot fighting against the industrial companies destroying the planet".
