Hi and welcome!
S2B2 is the deviantART home for illustrations for Shousetsu Bang*Bang.
SSBB is a webzine for original gay fiction in the style of Japanese boys-love serial manga, where every story is about the torrid romance of an ordinary schoolboy and his soccer club captain - or a yakuza boss and his faithful lieutenant - or the prince of an exotic desert country and the emerald-eyed winged youth he rescues from the sawtoothed sand monsters of G'or, self-contained in 30 pages and heartwarmingly predictable. Our policy is to welcome all comers, from the most flippant bit of cliché to the greatest of literary works... as long as they have fellas in love in them.
For more information, visit shousetsubangbang.com/ or bb-shousetsu.livejournal.com/p….
Works do not have to have been published in an SSBB issue to be connected with this group; concept art, extra sketches, and fanart are all welcome!
Please collect your illustrations in the appropriate folder, and help spread the word of the new group!
