About Titanium Rain

Did Taiwan ally with the Sino Union or was there a hostile takeover? Given the storied history between the two (even with warmer relations now), why would Taiwan want to help the beaten "Communist State?"

As China became more westernized it's relations with Taiwan improved vastly. Eventually the two nations negotiated a "separated but united" pact which was patterned after the relationship the United States has with Puerto Rico. And since the Sino Union was originally an economic alliance of Asian nations, naturally Taiwan remained a part of it when it was quickly converted into a military alliance. At this point Taiwan isn't so much concerned about what will become of the ousted PRC, but rather fears what a Jade ruled China will mean for them. Kao-Shen is an ultra-nationalist who see himself as a great conqueror. A Jade ruled China would inevitably lead to an invasion of Taiwan.

In Titanium Rain vol 2 will we be seeing another "Embedded" segment? And more of the undercover agent?

YES! Both "Project Duplicity" and "Embedded" will continue in Vol. 2, along with a new story about a gunrunner operating in Tibet. Also, the journalist character in "Embedded" will appear in the main story of Titanium Rain vol. 2. In the first part of the book he arrives at Mamoru Airbase to embed with Phoenix Squadron. Why? Well, let's just say he's got deeper motives for being there.

Both you and Kat do a fantastic job on the art. Who does what part of the art?

Hmmm...this could quickly become a VERY long answer. But for now the easy explanation is that Kat does all the "traditional" art --the pencils, crosshatching, flatting. I do all the digital stuff --the digital painting, most of the backgrounds, all the 3D design. I also do all of the graphic design for the book.
