Making Waves informs me that Ides of Blood is “making waves” in the comic world.  I’ve been doing a lot of research into Japanese history lately, which probably explains why the first thing I thought of in regards to that statement was whether to take it from the point of view of the Japanese or the Mongols.  Way back in the day, Kublai Khan and his Mongol super navy were sailing over to Japan for some good old-fashioned conquering when a kamikaze, meaning divine wind, created a tsunami that sank the Mongol fleet.  A very good turn of events if you’re Japanese.  Not so much if you’re a Mongol.  [Writer deletes rest of paragraph containing Comic Khan pun lest he is forced to seppuku himself.  Best stop with the whole divine wind analogy before it stretches any thinner.]  Anyway, I’ll assume making waves is a good thing.  It’s certainly preferable to drowning so quietly that nobody notices.

I also direct you to  Not for any particular reason other than it exists.
