    When I saw all the fan reviews, I knew I had to read this one, and boy was I NOT disappointed. U Don't Know Me is incredible! I don't even know where to begin. I love the characters, both individually and together. Seyun is kick ass and I love his mysterious side and his 'secret life,' if you want to call it that. Yoojin is definitely a surprising second part to the equation of their relationship; I wouldn't have had him pegged as being that kind of guy. Overall though, each of the characters is so believable and well done. The story itself is pretty remarkable too--when I saw what each of the characters has gone through and was setting themselves up for, and how each of them has dealt with leading such 'different' lives, I couldn't stop turning the digital pages. The art style is over-the-top, and whether it's one of the hot and steamy scenes, or just a simple conversation, the character drawings portray the emotions so amazingly that they might as well have been live action/animated. RAKUN has done an outstanding job, and I'm eagerly anticipating the remaining parts of the series!

    The only disappointing thing about this story is the fact that it's a one shot. It's like reading a great short story: there's incredibly developed characters that are dynamic and intriguing, there's a solid storyline that's revealed only enough to rope you in and leave you wanting more, and there is a very believable and relatable situation going on. Now, I'm not trying to say that this exact scenario is going on every day (one would hope not), but I am trying to say that each of the emotions felt in this story (perceived love, lust, betrayal, disappointment, compassion and the myriad ones that I haven't mentioned) are emotions that we experience and go through in our lives, and that's what really makes this a beautiful story. Even without the art, I think it's well told, but with the gorgeous artwork, it brings it to a whole new level of storytelling. S-KUN does it again, and I'm grateful to have been able to read another one of his/her stirring works.

    Vibration Love threw me for a loop. The name itself is a bit of an innuendo, but that I can get over. What really surprised me was how awesome the story is! It's great, there's a huge amount of drama, and already in the first couple pages I've been sucked right on in. I love the family dynamic to begin with: the way the older brother is so high-strung and the complete opposite that's seen in Haeyoon. And then we throw in Sungmoo, who has thrown on a whole other layer of intrigue all over the top. What's with their random love affair, but then� well, I won't give anything away. Needless to say, the art style is gorgeous and beautiful. Whoever this S-KUN is definitely has some incredible talent, and everyone really has a unique look, instead of every person looking exactly the same. I have to say that the production value on this Yaoi is way higher than others I've seen from other publishers. I can't wait for more to come out from this author, this is definitely one of the hottest books at Netcomics!

    When it boils down to it, there's only one real thing to say about Emperor's Castle: it kicks ass. Hands down, this is a manhwa that puts the graphic back into graphic novel. I love it. Chunhoo, the main character, and his son Sukgi are an epic tag team who can overcome any adversary. The story itself is nothing to scoff at, either. Telling the tale of Shi-Nan-Joo master Chunhoo who also happens to be the number one fighter in Japan, Emperor's Castle brings the reader along on a tour-de-force that crosses between countries as Chunhoo desperately tries to reunite with his estranged wife and son. Once reunited, their run from the mafia and their tale of self-discovery, loss, and revenge culminate in action-packed fist fights that suffer from ridiculous amounts of gritty, bloody, and exhilarating sequences. From the sex, to the action, to the martial arts and the fast-paced and thrilling storyline, Emperor's Castle is a Tarantino-esque opiate to the masses who starve for an action novel that's not just an Indiana Jones or Street Fighter clone. I've torn through the first books out, and can't wait for the next ones in the series!

    Wow. I don't usually like this kind of book, but I was snagged by the art style. I know there are people who will disagree with me, saying that the art is crude and/or unappealing to the eye, but for me it's just perfect. Though the lines start out a little wobbly, but the evolution of the art style from the beginning towards the more mature style in the later volumes makes for a fun journey. Something about it is just so design-portfolio-esque. Rok, Belle and Krumb are three absolutely dynamic women who make for a very entertaining story. It's mature and edgy, and much like the foreword the author provides, I agree with her when she says that this is a story that applies just as much to contemporary society as it did when it was written almost a decade ago. Morim Kang took what could have been an overdone and tired story that we've all seen before and instead went a direction that created three very distinct and dynamic women. I'd be hard pressed to find qualities that really overlap between them, and by doing this, Kang has given the reader (even guys, to a point) something to really reach out and attach yourself to. Whether you're insecure and klutzy like Krumb, a couture and chic womanlike Belle, or frustrated with humanity like Rok, there's a deep and rich human aspect to the story that we can all relate to. Congrats to Kang, this is definitely a masterpiece.

    After reading so much of this series, I felt like it was time I said my piece. Aegis blows my mind. From the very beginning, it didn't just draw me in--it violently pulled me in. The story of these boy soldiers being put through their training, and the subsequent realities of war, demonstrated so much of what is taken for granted when it comes to the battlefield. So rarely do many of the jaded people in today's society think of what really goes on: the deaths, the friendships forged, the psychological damage. Aegis takes all of this and puts it out there for the reader to see. It's gritty and, despite being of the Sci-Fi genre, it is definitely realistic in terms of the emotions brought to the table. Beyond just the gripping storyline, which I must say has more turns than I ever could have expected, the actual art of the story is beautiful. Though it sticks to traditional manhwa style, the envisioning of the characters' uniforms, the decimated cityscapes, and the moments of tenderness or intense drama that are highlighted are all incredibly wrought with an attention to detail that I find to be staggering. I'm on the edge of my seat with this series constantly, and I'm eagerly anticipating the next volumes!

    I was lurking around the website today when I caught sight of this title in the Recent Updates section. Sounded like something interesting, and when I opened up the first chapter, I was totally surprised! I said to myself, "What's this? Not Manhwa? Not Manga?" But at the same time, I was totally intrigued by the whole idea. Looks like netcomics is finally breaking into some American titles. So, I read a few pages and I have to say, I'm hooked. I like the art style -- it's something different and refreshing. And the characters, too, it reminds me of being in high school again, with everyone portrayed pretty realistically. I hope more people catch on to this title, it looks like it's going to be a sleeper hit. What's everyone else think?
