MASSIVE GOODS is a fashion brand, publisher, and creative agency representing queer and feminist artists from Japan. MASSIVE’s mission is to spread iconoclastic artwork addressing gender and sexuality to new audiences and new forms, from museum walls to bodies everywhere.
MASSIVE also publishes limited edition fine art prints and original manga including Jiraiya’s prehistoric romp Caveman Guu and Gengoroh Tagame’s Cretian Cow, a sci-fi tale based on Greek mythology. A series of extra-large giclee prints of four famous Jiraiya illustrations were made for his first U.S. tour in spring 2015, which saw the artist make appearances in front of packed crowds at bookstores, museums, universities and cultural institutions including ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives, The Tom of Finland Foundation, The Cartoon Art Museum, and Printed Matter.
MASSIVE continues to work with gay male manga artists while expanding the brand’s focus to include artists from across the spectrum of gender and sexuality. In spring 2016, Koyama Press will release the MASSIVE-produced English translation of What Is Obscenity?, a manga memoir detailing Tokyo-based artist Rokudenashiko’s obscenity arrest stemming from a 3D data file of her own vagina, which she infamously used to create the world’s first pussy kayak.
