The Red String of destiny has taken quite a while to lead Gina Biggs from webcomics to print.
Biggs’ series Red String began online at www.strawberrycomics.com way back in May 2003 and is now has a devoted readership that eagerly awaits each new page when they are updated three times a week.
The series follows the life of Japanese high schooler Miharu Ogawa, whose world gets turned upside down when her parents inform her that she has an arranged marriage.
Miharu’s life gets even more confusing when she then meets a wonderful guy and starts falling for him.
Will the red string that ties two people destined to be together link her to him? Or does is connect her to this mysterious fiancé?
Red String is fun and romantic comic-of-age story full of fun twists and turns. Hopefully this new print edition will give even more attention to Biggs’ fine work.
