Make Mine Manga!: Free Japanese Comics & Cosplay Party


We’re having a manga party and you’re invited - and it’s free, you just have to book! Whether you’re in Germany or in Britain, people adore Japan’s vibrant pop culture of manga comics, anime TV and films and costume-playing or ‘cosplay’ and love to make their own versions.

The much-loved German artist Christina Plaka, famed for her series Prussian Blue and Yonen Buzz (above), published in English by TokyoPop, is currently exhibiting her comics artwork at the Goethe-Institut’s Comics, Manga & Co. show in London.



Christina is coming over specially to meets for the first time the brilliant Chinese-born, London-based manga artist Yishan Li, internationally published, notably Cutie B in France, Manga Females Clip Art in the UK, and The Clique (below) in the USA. (Please note that the previously billed Emma Vieceli has had to cancel her appearance due to illness).

Come and see Christina and Yishan as they share their passions for creating manga and to draw their characters together ‘live’ on a projection screen. They will be joined by talented cosplayers, by special invitation, whose costumes are inspired by some of the realistic and fantastical British and German characters who have appeared in Japanese comics and animation. Why not come to our party in costume yourself?

Tickets: Free but book by calling 020 7596 4000 or email to info[at]london.goethe.org
Where: Goethe-Institut, 50 Princes Gate, London SW7 2PH
When: Saturday, November 24, 2012 6.30-9.00pm
