We also asked a professional manga artist to draw something for us!

We asked the popular Chinese manga artist 19van to draw an example of a 4koma manga for us for our "Third Annual asianbeat 4Koma Manga Contest."
19van's "兔子帮(RABBIT GANG)" is a comic book series for children released in 2007 that consists of 32 volumes and has sold a total of over 5.1 million copies. He also does anime series and will be releasing his second series, which is scheduled to be broadcasted at the end of this year. 19van's original characters will be making an appearance in this short 4Koma manga strip. Please check below, they're very cute!
