Artist Feature: Yang Young-Soon

Yang Young-Soon
Yang Young-Soon is a Korean comic artist with whom I am completely fascinated. Unfortunately, there isn't too much info on him I was able to find online.  As a matter of fact, about the only thing I could find on the guy outside of actual comics, was that evidently one of his comics (I couldn't find a link to it) was turned into a series of softcore Korean sex cartoons. Cool?

And I'm not sure if it's just the cultural gap, but I find the level of awkward he's able to conjure up with his comics absolutely brilliant, and oh-so-funny to boot. His facial expressions remind me of watching late-night "odd" anime and gives me the warm-and-fuzzies, which as it turns out is a confusing feeling when faced with something as baffling as say, this:

What I don't even

I was able to find a site that appears to have a large collection of his translated works:

There are also some translations available here, although it's not quite as easy to navigate. At any rate, I hope you take a few minutes to check out these awesome (y/n?) comics.

... Also, if you speak/read Korean, and are willing to translate some information on this guy, let me know.
