Like the U.S. company Antarctic Press, the U.K.-based APC specializes in manga that really isnít manga. In other words, they are non-Japanese comics that try to capture the look and feel of their Asian counterparts. The emphasis, though, is on splashy illustrations with characters drawn in cartoon-like exaggeration, lacking the subtlety of most Japanese comic art. This one-shot is simply a taste test of APCís various titles, ranging from the goofy action of Assassin Girl to the film noir detective fiction of The Chase, which surprisingly shows no anime roots.
