New resource: Comipedia

ComiPedia is the brainchild of Shawn (Eclipse) of ComiPress fame. I just spent a little time wandering around the site, and it’s a very useful resource for anyone who is curious about Japanese manga magazines. The guide, which was compiled by a number of people over a period of time, gives basic information about each magazine: the publisher, price, release schedule, link to the website, and a cover scan. ComiPedia is searchable by title, publisher, or genre, and it includes light novel imprints, too. Ed Chavez wrote the introduction, and Shawn includes a timeline of the history of the project itself. It’s very nicely done and I highly recommend it.
