German artist Dirk Schweiger has put a new spin on webcomics: He takes requests. Ask Schweiger, who lives in Tokyo, to sample an aspect of Japanese culture and he will draw a comic about it. The result is MORESUKINE, a funny and often insightful comic drawn in classic indy-comics style. Canned coffee, cubicle hotels, natto—it’s all in there. My favorite so far: Schweiger’s beautiful rendering of a visit to Mount Takao.
