This is for our UK readers (or others with a private jet and massive amounts of disposable income). I received a notice from Paul Gravett, manga expert and author of the luxurious and large creator-focused book, Manga: 60 Years of Japanese Comics. Next week, he will be holding a presentation and lecture in London about manga that might be of interest to ya'll:
"The idea is whether you're a novice or a serious otaku, it promises to be a fun night celebrating the diversity and quality of Japanese comics today. I've put a flyer below and people can come to my site for more details and to book tickets via PayPal (people must book ahead of the evening)."
Thursday, 23rd October 2008, 7pm to 9.30pm
There will be an interval with light refreshments.
