This marker is not easy to find in Europe. My first Maxon Comic Marker was a gift and bought in Japan. But I only got a set of twelve and it is very difficult to get a real understanding for a marker with so few. So I searched the Internet after places to buy more and found one (and only one). It's an Italian store called Puromanga.com that had them on sail. By the way, this is a very good store and they are very friendly and generous.
I have already written about another marker from Maxon. But this one is very different. Its ink has a feel and a look as if it was water based. Even its barrel has a look that's make you think about watercolor, since parts of the barrel are turquoise and transparent. It is also very easy to get a watercolor look. I think it is very difficult and unfair to compare this marker to others since it work so different. This marker doesn’t do its best work trying to draw lots of detail and in a very realistic manner (even if it can do that too), this marker show its best side when sketching and letting its watercolor feel shine. For me, who draw a lot with markers, this is so exiting to have a marker that give me this new possible and challenge. It’s difficult to do larger drawings, mostly because it doesn't have a chisel nib, but also because the colors don’t cover large area well.
