It’s always a joy to speak for the Lewis Carroll Society of North America, and now – less than a week since I spoke about Alice manga for them – they have posted the talk to Youtube. Enjoy a speed-run of over half a century of Alice manga by everyone from Keiko Takemiya to Hideo Azuma, Akira Otomo to CLAMP, Kaori Yuki to Jun Mochizuki.
The cover of Alice in Japanese Wonderlands has been finalized, and it’s awesome! The featured image is from Sakura Kinoshita’s ALICE IN WONDERLAND Picture Book.
Ms. Kinoshita was kind enough to grant me permission to use the illustration. If you like the image, please consider trying some of her other works, like the manga Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok and tactics or the smart phone game Thousand Noble Heroes, which features her character designs.
Fluttering Across the Pages of Manga History
I’ll be speaking for the Lewis Carroll Society of North America this weekend about Alice manga – important artists, pivotal points in the history of manga, and key genres. Well, that makes it sound rather important, but it amounts to me geeking out about some fabulous manga. Please do join me if you feel so inclined. ?
