Shintaro Kago in Vice ONLINE!

I just managed to get my hands on scans of the Shintaro Kago pages in this month's issue of Vice. Thumbnails here, and links to download large scans below. ENJOY!

3 page interview thumbnails:

4 page Vice exclusive comic thumbnails:

UPDATE: No need to download scans unless you want them REALLY BIG (if so, just email me). The interview with Kago, picture of him holding his dog and the entire comic can be found online at Viceland here.

PS: I want to send a copy of the magazine to our Shintaro Kago scanlator and provider, Mr. Anonymous K. I have his contact details, so if you have a copy you'd like to donate, I would really appreciate it. Mr. K lives in a country where he'll probably not see this magazine in person unless a generous Same Hatter gifts him one. Email me at samehatATgmailDOTcom if you wanna be his secret santa.

Oh, I am enjoying it, no doubt about that! :) great little interview and even better comic :)
btw, I'm reading Ero Guro Nansensu book. Great stuff. Gives you a whole lot more perspective on things, in terms of analysing ero guro as a japanese version of modern 30's culture.

Hey JEFF :)

Thanks for that-- I noticed the bump in traffic lately. I've been under the gun with a book i'm translating and editing, but I'm gonna start posting in earnest again this weekend.

I appreciate the readership.
