With Comiket over, some attention turns to what could be thought of as its figures equivalent, Wonder Festival. The winter version of the twice-yearly expo for garage kit hobbiests and professional figure makers is coming up February 7th at Makuhari Messe, in Chiba, and again, Kiyohiko Azuma, author of manga Yotsuba&! and Azumanga Daioh, has illustrated the latest incarnations of mascots Wanda-chan and Reset-chan.
The pair were originally illustrated by Keinojou Mizutama (original character designer on MAOYU and Brigadoon), who sadly passed away at the end of 2014. During her preceding illness, Kiyohiko Azuma was invited to illustrate the characters.
