As if we needed any more convincing that Manga Studio is indeed a badass tool for the modern cartoonist, Dave Gibbons does demo of some Watchmen promo stuff he did recently using the program.

I was a thesis adviser for one of the graduating seniors from CCS this year. His work is heavily Japanese manga influenced and he’s been singing the praises of Manga Studio pretty much all year. He used it in his thesis project and I have to admit it made the work look really sharp. It’s nice to see an elder statesman cartoonist like Gibbons using this kind of software. It’s encouraging. I think I may have to look into really figuring Manga Studio out.
