MANGA: NOT MADE IN JAPAN


Manga no longer have to be “Made in Japan”, now that the language of Japanese comics is transforming the medium globally. Discover the new voices of Western manga-ka from Sonia Leong of Sweatdrop Studios, who is adapting Shakespeare into manga, to graphic novelist-editor Ilya, who introduces the international contributors to his Mammoth Book of Best New Manga. Copies of the Mammoth Book of Best New Manga will be available for purchase (the first chance to buy the book) and artists will be signing copies after the panel in the ICA Bar between 4.30pm and 5.00pm.

Where: ICA, The Mall, London
When: Sunday, October 8, 2006 - 3.30pm to 4.30pm
