So it’s been a little while now since we stopped updating here at Deutsche Mangaka, but we haven’t been sitting still!

I (Niki/Elae) have been busy working on breaking into the comics scene myself. And now, I’m one giant step closer! But I need your help.

Read the monthly Zuda competition that DC Comics runs? It’s a webcomic competition, with 10 finalists each month, and the people who visit the site vote for which comic will take 1st place and get an ongoing contract from DC.

A few months ago I teamed up with writer Michael Jasper and we put together an entry… last week we found out we were chosen to take part in this month’s competition! :D

If you want to help out, just do the following:
(If you’re confused by the instructions, I put a how-to graphic on my site )

1. Register on
2. Verify the account via your email.
3. Sign into and select “IN MAPS & LEGENDS
4. Read the comic! :)
5. To the right of the comic, please press the VOTE button, rate the comic five stars and ‘add as favorite.’ The vote is by far the most important of these three things. (You can also add a nice comment if you want~)
6. Have your friends do the same before the end of November.

And that’s it! I can’t say thank you enough if you choose to help us out.

Even if you don’t vote for us, be sure to check out the contest. Zuda puts up some really interesting stories each month, and it’s a great chance to see what’s popular with readers and why. And spread the word!
