Originally produced for the November 2009 Japan Trip anthology, Journeys, “Nekoshima” has found a home at bentocomics.com. It’s the tale of a cat enthusiast who goes on a vacation to a feline-infested island.
Bento Comics grew out of a discussion between some artists and programmers one evening after spending the weekend at Anime Boston. “Wouldn’t it be neat,” we posited, “if a person could go to a website, choose a bunch of different comics, and have them printed into a single custom anthology?”
Cookie Thief was my first addition to the great comics site, bentocomics.com. This is the story of a little girl, accused of stealing cookies from the cookie jar, trying to clear her name by capturing the real culprit.
