Colored Manga and East, Into the Night by ANGYAMAN

Unlike the West’s comics, manga is often drawn in black ink on white paper. This is for a number of reasons. Besides artistic style, there’s one huge factor: cost. It’s much, much cheaper for all involved. How’s this? Well, let me throw in a little history and a little know-how from doing production editor work.

So, obviously I have a thing for thrillers. And crime stories. And mysteries. A fast-paced book that takes off from the first sentence is definitely my cup of tea.

Gina Royal had the perfect life. Two kids, a home in the suburbs, a husband that works hard. That all disappeared when a drunk driver crashed into her family’s garage…and revealed her husband is a serial killer.

Now she’s on the run with her kids while her husband rots in jail and Gina is now Gwen and she has to keep them moving to stay safe. When the land in the small, quiet town of Stillhouse Lake Gwen thinks maybe, just maybe, they’ve found a new place to call home. Online vigilantes haven’t found her yet, the people in town don’t appear to know her face from the news and her kids are settling in.
