By: Tsukasa Jun
Details: Tsukasa's 1999 doujinshi release is a pleasantly thick book containing 98 pages, 30 of which are full color. It also contains a small fold-out image. Similar to Tsukasa's other books, 1999 includes a large variety of fan-style artwork covering everything from Street Fighter to King of Fighters to Rival Schools to Resident Evil to Neon Genesis Evangelion to X-Men. Of course, many original character illustrations and sketches are present as well.
In typical Tsukasa fashion, several mini manga strips are contained within the book. These strips in 1999 are devoted to King of Fighters, Street Fighter, Art of Fighting, and his own personal characters. [The Street Fighter strip is surprisingly racy, not to mention... racy enough that some blur censoring is implemented.]
The quality of the actual book is very high. The cover is constructed of a thick, coarse paper material. The color images are printed on glossy sheets and the black and white work is presented on off-white pages with a distinct textured feel. You could swear the pencil marks came directly from Tsukasa's pencil to each of the pages.
