Amazing Agent Jennifer is featured in MTV Geek: [link]
"Kriss Sison's art is slick and professional, perfect for this type of book, and I love that this is a girl-centered story where Jennifer is the one who makes things happen."
"I really, really enjoyed the Kriss Sison's art work in AAJ. I thought it was definitely some of the best I have seen because his character depictions were just amazing. I loved how Sison so perfectly captured the the different personalities and expressions of the characters. The art was definitely one of the highlights of the entire manga, along with the storyline."

Mangaholix of the Month
What's your origin story? When did you join Mangaholix? Why did you join Mangaholix? Are you high?
I started from a humble beginning. I was just your typical heartthrob minding my own business when I saw this comic/manga group. At first, I thought this was a group of scammers but I wasn't doing anything else with my time so I said to myself, "what the heck". I joined on 2007 as a freelance colorist then after waiting to be scammed, (I was surprised I wasn't. . . yet) I joined in as a fulltime artist on 2008.
What's it like working at Mangaholix?
Work? There's no such thing as work at Mangaholix
hehehe. . . he. . . ahm. . . just kidding. Call me guys, I'm free
What skills, styles and bad habits did you develop during your stay?
Working at the studio really helped me develop my painting skills and style but it made my sleeping and eating habits worse!!! Midnight roundtrip for an eat-all-you-can buffet plus 2 dozen pizza and spaghetti wars!!! Curse your fatness aura Emman!!!
Describe your typical working day?
I wake up, pee, wash, sit, paint while cheesy chatting with
, eat, then punch my Editor-In-Chief
, complain about life and why Ben Affleck is not starring on any latest movies. Then go back to painting then adore
wishing someday I'll be as unreachable as he is. Then eat again while watching those jerks play Marvel vs Capcom 3, then go back to painting while having cheesy conversations then goes back to bed and sleep. . . bath? What the heck is that?
What do you think is the greatest misconception people have about the art industry?
I think it's the idea that all artists in the industry are united but we're not. . . It's sad but true. There is still that wall that we all need to break down but too much pride is getting in the way. . . Oh wait, what?
What part of your style would you like to improve?
Everything. I want to improve everything until I can become an unreachable artist like Oly~
What are your goals for the future?
I want to be fit again. I used to have this rockin' physique until I met our Editor-in-chief and. . . Oh, you mean my goal as an artist? Well to have my own studio I guess. I didn't use the name totmoartstudio just for the heck of it you know. Hehehe.
Who's your favorite member? Why?
My favorite member beside myself? Hmm. . . I would say our editor in chief because I like to see him cry like a baby after punching his face or maybe it's our hard-rockin', babe smoochin', beer drinkin'. . . Jaimee
or maybe it's our ginger midget. . . Well it cant be our unreachable artists because you need their permission before they agree to be your favorite.
How do you feel about being chosen as Mangaholic of the month?
What?!? I was chosen?!? They told me if I pay them $200 they'll feature me!!!
Any advice for the people who want to join Mangaholix?
Dont. . .
