Welcome to another Manhwa Monday!
Somewhat in the realm of political cartoons, as reported by The Chosun Ilbo, Cho Won-haeng, a professor at Mokwon University in Daejeon, has created a set of caricatures of world leaders as part of next month’s G20 Summit.
The exhibition, organized by the Korea Manhwa Contents Agency with support from the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, will travel around Seoul before the Summit, and organizers are negotiating to exhibit the drawings at the actual venue, COEX exhibition hall in Samseong-dong.
Check out the Chosun article to see more of the drawings.
Webtoon publisher iSeeToon has offered a sneak peek at their new iOS app, due out shortly. The first of their offerings, Kim Se Rae’s Magician, will feature an English adaptation by editor Daniella Orihuela-Gruber, who also works on various titles for TOKYOPOP. This will be Daniella’s first manhwa.
Speaking of TOKYOPOP, here’s an interesting review of their manhwa, The Tarot Cafe in the tarot section at freepsychicreadings.com.
Also, at Slightly Biased Manga, Connie checks out volume five of Bride of the Water God (Dark Horse). And at Manga Maniac Cafe, Julie takes a look at volume five of 13th Boy (Yen Press).
That’s all for this week!
Is there something I’ve missed? Leave your manhwa-related links in comments!

Oh! Congratulations to Daniella! I had not heard about that yet (or missed it somewhere).

I’m really grateful that they brought her on. They needed a native English speaker badly.
