Burning Pen Magna Scanlations Chapter 1

Burning Pen is by mangaka Shimamoto Kazuhiko, it is about a hot blooded mangaka, Honoh Moyuru, drawing hot blooded manga. The story is hilarious, in chapter one we learn the Mangaka Ten Commandments, the most efficient way to learn to draw effect lines and most importantly negotiating with a manga editor. Why is negotiating so important? Because if you lose in negotiations you can never write anything interesting.
All this is presented with great style, and featuring guest appearances by the Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone.
So if you have a desire to become a mangaka forget the "How to Draw Manga" series and download these scanlations.

You can download the scanlations here, scanned by the group Seven Star Stories they actually have two sites hosting the files, new and old. They are currently working on Gyakkyou Nine also written by Shimamoto Kazuhiko. Be sure to send them an email letting them know that their work is appreciated.
