Jinky Coronado wants to collect Banzai Girl into one massive volume


FHM model turned comics creator, Jinky Coronado has a new Kickstarter campaign going to collect the entire Banzai Girl run into a single volume.

According to the press release, the first Banzai Girl series will be collected into a 160-page volume for fans of the series.

“Although I’m currently drawing PANDORA’s BLOGS and EXPOSURE for Red Giant Entertainment and drew Meg Cabot’s AVALON HIGH graphic novel series at HarperCollins, BANZAI GIRL is my personal project, full of Filipino culture and environments and even characters based on my own family.  I’m thrilled with the idea of bringing it back into print,” said Coronado in a prepared statement.

BANZAI GIRL’s Jinky Coronado is a girl of three worlds; she just doesn’t know it yet. Her nightmares of being both a Princess and a Future Freedom Fighter collide with her real-life as an Asian schoolgirl. Where her biggest obstacles should be homework, boys, and her Dad’s new girlfriend, she is thrust into a world of monsters and madness. An alien invasion possessing her town’s parents! Strange creatures known as the Duwende, the Kapre`, the Tikbalang, and the Manananggal! A schoolgirl-eating snake creature hidden beneath a shopping mall! Jinky becoming a model and recording star! And much more!
