BANZAI GIRL Graphic Novel Shows FHM-model Jinky Coronado Doing What She Does Best

banzai2FHM lingerie model-turned-comics-creator/writer/artist Jinky Coronado’s BANZAI GIRL webcomic comes alive in a full-color graphic novel!

A dozen years ago, around the time Jinky moved to the USA, where she created, wrote, was cover model for, and drew — with colorist Mike Kelleher and co-artist Wilson Tortosa — the series BANZAI GIRL for Sirius Comics and, later, its sequel series BANZAI GIRLS for Arcana Studio.

More recently, Jinky resurrected BANZAI GIRL on as a serialized webcomic!

Now: Jinky is trying to collect my first BANZAI GIRL series into a big, beautiful, 160-page full-color graphic novel, using Kickstarter ( ) as a means and this is what she says about it herself: “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.”

Pages: 160 full color pages + Cover

Writer/Artist: Jinky Coronado (w/Wilson Tortosa)

What’s it all about? 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!

As you can see, Jinky tried to create a style for a series that anime` and manga fans would like, from the little schoolgirl uniforms to the oddball mascot character — but she made it very much about the myths and mysteries of her native Philippines and stocked it with people from her real life!

banzaiJINKYJinky will be including bonus art from such superstar artists as Mike Deodato, Jr., Will Conrad, Al Rio, Cliff Richards, Adriana Melo, and Playboy’s Dean Yeagle!

What’s more, she’ll be including a whole bunch of bonus stuff, as well — including a photo album and a really cool sketchbook section of behind-the-scenes art.

About the Author

Richard is the driving force behind Comics for Sinners. His love and admiration for female comic book characters is virtually unparalleled, which immediately explains his biggest 'sin': his Hot Mummy fetish. This sketchbook theme is philogynistic in nature and even the source of his WIP comic book series "The Sisterhood".
