The first Superscenic, #CDS0001, was put together by the original Collateral Damage Studios (CDS) artists back in 2007. It was announced during the first Kaleidoscope and debuted at EOY of the same year. A compilation artbook featuring the work of various artists in the group and some guest art, it was unlike anything else the doujin community had offered then. It captured the spirit of the young group then; the raw skills and talents along with an earnest desire to showcase their works to the public.
Five years on, thanks to all the support the community had given the group, CDS had grown to be popular and more importantly, better. Going by product number, we had produced about thirty products by now. It was time to test our limits and do something memorable to mark the occasion, something both familiar and different from what we usually do.
It was time for another Superscenic 2.
Superscenic 2 collects the original works from the nine active artists within the CDS team along with some commissioned works that we have done in the past over 80 pages of prettiness. Xeph, WaHa, Tragic Comedy, Haimerejzero, GreenTeaNeko, JUN, IdleErrant, Setsuri and Semi-Shigure. Some of them had been with the team since its formation while others had only joined as recent as last year.
Check out what lurks beneath the minds of these artists when left un-inhibited by fandom. Enjoy their individuality and their styles as they illustrate their imaginary worlds. Learn from the team’s experience of working with each other and working with clients to create some really pretty artworks.
Other than emailing us directly or visiting us during events, you can also get Superscenic 2 through more conventional means.

So one often read about art theft. It’s not something new and on our part, we had our fair share of it. While doing my research for this, I tried to access some of the old links containing instances when our art was stolen. Unfortunately, those links seem to be down. So what we have are here: Someone trying to sell T-shirts based on ours (and Daiyaku’s) artwork and another person trying to pass off Haimerejzero’s artwork for his own.
Art theft is a sticky topic and I suspect what I will say will be relatively shallow. But let’s try to establish a proper CDS stance on this nasty topic, ya?
