NOTE: I do NOT offer or link to manga downloads or scans on this site. PLEASE don't ask me where you can read this stuff online. Almost all of my summaries are based on actual books I buy and read in Japanese. I have no idea if any of this is online, and would encourage people to purchase the actual books.
Soo Min Kim has made a habit of turning the iconic mermaid on Starbucks’ paper coffee cups into both fantastic and mundane characters. Kim, who uses both markers and paint, clearly has a lively and healthy imagination. His variations on the mermaid comment on everyday life, make philosophical statements, or simply turn the mermaid into a fearsome death-robot.
