Here are some reviews of the previous issues of Drunken Master.

"The greatest West L.A.-based zine about Asian pop culture that isn't named Giant Robot: Drunken Master, the work of writer-illustrator-martial artist Kiyoshi Nakazawa, is raw as fugu and packs the same lip-tingling thrills. past issues have included a manga series about a mixed-martial-arts fighter; the latest edition features a talking narwhal and a photo roundup of some of the most gruesome yet strangely beautiful cauliflower ears in grappling history. Published erratically and available at all Giant Robot outlets."

"...The main event, though, is the comic. Kiyoshi has many talents, but I like his comics most. This installment makes a lot of headway into the plot about a MMA fighter developing his skills and coming to grips with his family issues. Don't hold off for a collected graphic novel, because that won't come out for a while.

I think the best part of the publication is that it's a true zine. Yes, you find out about the band Ninja Academy, new toys by Gargamel, and other neat stuff, but mostly you take away a glimpse into Kiyoshi himself. An indie-comics zine doesn't seem like a vehicle for fighting, rock 'n' roll, and good times at the bar, but Kiyoshi blends it all seamlessly."

"DRUNKEN MASTER qualifies as more of a straight up ‘zine but there are comics in it so I’m reviewing it here. Nakazawa presents a mish-mash of absolutely crazy art, interviews, and random writings. DRUNKEN MASTER succeeds at being incredibly interesting and actually, to a certain extent, beyond description. I’ve had a chance to check out other issues of DRUKEN MASTER before and it’s always entertaining stuff and worth picking up. If you want something different and beyond the norm, this ‘zine is definitely the place to go. Wildly creative."

"People who have their shit together impress me. People who have their shit together, work full-time jobs, have a young child who they cherish, and continue putting out kick-ass zines that they’ll never see any financial returns on, well, that’s humbling. In the land of instant gratification and blogs, you gotta take pause and realize that certain things don’t get outdated. At the top of that list: quality. All controlled by the deft, kung-fu hand of Kiyoshi, Drunken Master is part Frank Miller meets manga comics, part essay, part “hey, this is really cool, a bar with twelve pinball machines in the back.” And it’s all distilled and controlled and personalized, so it doesn’t come across disjointed or haphazard when Kiyoshi interviews a fetish actress who gets food tossed at her, and two pages later, it’s a picture of and homage to his mother’s passing. DM is an open invite into friendly, thoughtful, wonderfully drawn world."
