Wine Comics - any talent out there?

Any wine-loving illustrators out there? Andes wine is holding a competition (details here) to try and find the world's best Wine Comic. The UK isn't exactly awash with comics on wine - it's supposed to be a serious topic, dear boy - but in some Far Eastern markets, one of the most popular wine critics is Shizuku Kanzaki, a manga character who features in the strip "Kami no Shizuku (The Drops of the Gods)".

What did you turn up in terms of wine comics?

It's crazy that Kami no Shizuku is still not officially available in English. I'm obsessed with this manga though and did round up some links to unauthorized 'scanlations' at various sites here:
