If you haven't seen it already, the most recent issue of Vice is chock-full of comics and manga. For the "No Pictures" issue, Vice went all out and has featured a number of interview features with artists & designers, including friends of Same Hat like illustrator Matt Lock (featured in Electric Ant #1) and painter Mimi Leung.
Under the tutelage of Editor-in-Chief Jesse Pearson (who provided us with free copies of the Shintaro Kago interview) issue, along with help from Johnny Ryan and Vice Japan editor Tomo, Vice has also expanded the Vice Manga section to include three chill artists.
These are not so much manga, but large illustrations by the hilarious and strange painter/photographer. Click here for the articles on Vice, or check out an excellent biography and gallery of Imiri Sakabashira's art on Bill Randall's site.
