You’re All Invited To A Manga Party!

Posted: November 23, 2012

We’re having a Manga Comics & Cosplay Party tomorrow, Saturday November 24th, at the Goethe-Institut, 50 Princes Gate, London SW7 2PH. You’re all invited - and it’s free, you just have to rsvp by calling 020 7596 4000 or emailing to info[at]london.goethe.org !

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 - we hope she gets well soon).

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?
