Let me show you some of my 4koma (about my life with cats).
Nao-p is my nick name my friend Mami Tachibana gave me. And I call her Mami-p. Of course it comes from Wedding Peach "Momo-p". No one calls me by the name except for her, but I love the 4 koma cartoon "Go Go Momo-pi (Gan-bare Momo-p)"(In the paperbacks) so I use it. :)
Oh, I'm a manga artist Nao Yazawa, and author of Wedding Peach, by the way. :)
These "comic strips" come from my 4-koma blog (in Japanese). You can see all of them in original here. If you have a request which 4koma will be next, tell me. :D

Rental Manga on the net shop
The system pays some royalty to the artist, it's not a bad idea, better than that you buy books at a used book store and sell it after you finished, like some people do. Anyway, I don't have space for new books - I don't sell/throw away any books.
I think if we had such shop when I was young, I couldn't have stopped reading manga, but I'm not enthusiastic manga fan anymore like I used to be, so no worried about addiction. ;)
