Hey Guys :iconodunze: Founder,

My name is Odunze AKA WhytManga, I am the creator of the Manga Series "Apple Black" published and serialized by NEW shonen Manga | Comic BI WEEKLY Anthology Magazine "Saturday-AM", OR… I also have a very Popular Youtube channel: http// there are helpful links below!

First off I'd like to thank everyone who has subscribed to Saturday-AM, the Shonen Magazine that publishes Apple Black and other GREATS like Bully Eater, Comatose, Mythallica Lux Nova, Katharos, Posbots, Ghosts, TTX and More!, Which I'm also Co-founder of MyFutprint with Saturday-AM as one of our subsidiaries (along side, Afternoon WebX - Free manga, Wel RED ebooks), POINT IS, I'm enjoying it so far, Apple Black is nearing it's HOOK as I would like to call it, I mean, there have already been several little memorable moments in the manga, To significant battles, some good mini arcs leading to the first big one, needless to say, I'M PUMPED, just can't wait to be engulfed within the first Arc which if you're loving things so far GREAT, but I'm just getting started, can't rush these things, I want to tell a great story. I think I'm doing a pretty swell job, I still see things I need to improve on but I think time and effort will fix that, also good competition from the other Manga | Comics on the Roster of the magazine. With 7 Chapters completely done, I think that hit into the highest Gear Is Near!

(leave suggestions in the comments)

Stay Tuned for TODAY I will upload a video on Youtube of me working on a page (Toning) from start to finish, My goal is to reach 10,000 Subscribers and 100 Videos by the end of the year, hopefully. What do you guys think about another contest pretty soon?, any suggestions?, Thoughts on a contest or the product? Comment below, will be reading. Please guys Spread the word on the Apple Black Manga/Comics, the Saturday-AM magazine for support if you want to, much will be appreciated? we really want this to take off! with so many advantages including a NEW source for content in our already small community, the goal is to be the next MARVEL of manga, but in our own way, so please support. contact us at Saturday-AM for more info, submissions ETC.

Indomerun Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2014
Hi there!

I am a Manga/comic writer looking for an artist.

"In a world that values Strength, heroes with magical powers granted by their God fight in a tournament in order to decide who will be the next king of the world." 

# The concept is pretty straight forward, and the battles are massive and aggressive, without the classic flashbacks and smalltalk. 
# Despite the simple concept, the plot is thick and deep, with several lawyers of philosophy and knowledge. There is allways more than meets the eye and the importance of charracters shifts during the evolution of the story. 
# The overall theme of the world is medieval fantasy with futuristic elements (like for example Final Fantasy XII).

The story is almost done, and there is a complete storyboard of a oneshot completely ready to be drawn! The artist has permission to adapt the storyboard to his style of drawing, to manage character design and elements of the world. I am looking for someone that would actively participate in the creation of the world and characters, and not only a robot to draw the storyboard. 

If you are interested please send me some art or link to the email: or message me here in DeviantArt ;) (Wink)
