MISC. MANGA, *Sinfest

This hysterical online comic strip is collected in printed format from Dark Horse Comics, although originally through Muse Works. Creator Tatsuya Ishida, whose previous work was on one of the American comics of Godzilla, and other indy comics like Strangelove and Zen: Intergalactic Ninja, started this out at a UCLA newspaper, and then a webcomic through Keenspot. After breaking away from Keenspot, he met with bigger success self-publishing it.

A young man named Slick wants to sell his soul for money, fame, power, babes, etc. Although, the Devil usually puts him on hold alot as he’s constantly at odds with God who only appears with his hands while puting on puppet shows in the sky or thumb wrestling the Chinese Dragon. To bide his time until his application to Satan goes through, Slick tries to be a pimp, and sometimes a coffee house beatnik. All this while trying to win the affections of the dropdead gorgeous poet babe Monique.

If you loved the original Bloom County comic and are at least a part-time anime fan, then this one you can’t pass up.
