SMA MC MEMBER MAKES THE FINAL IN ZENON MANGA CONTEST!

Italian SMA MasterClass newcomer, Momo Sanse has made it to the final in Comic Zenon’s manga contest Manga-Taisho, with 37 pages of hard boiled, emotionally charged manga entertainment!

“Max of the Back Alley” (Jpn: “Roji-ura no Makkusu”) tells the story of Max, a pizza delivery boy born and raised on the back streets in the wrong side of town. With aspirations of making it big in Milan, the Italian capital of elegance, his plans and life are thrown into jeopardy when delivering a pizza to the universally feared “Don Leone”…

Now in its 22nd Round, Comic Zenon’s Manga-Taisho is a manga contest with a difference. Not only judged by professional mangaka, the competition is also judged by booksellers and the general public in order to evaluate the marketability of future Japanese manga PROS.

With “Max of the Back Alley” making it into the final, Momo is now up for the Reader Vote!

Momo’s manga will be available for review by the general public (including YOU in the SMAC Community!) on the Comic Zenon Website, IN JAPANESE* until THURSDAY, January 21st at 23:59 (JPN time).
