Massive is an appropriate title for this anthology of Japanese gay manga artists, in more than one sense. Besides the larger-than-your-average-bear body types, the book highlights some of the biggest talent in the gay manga scene today. Names like Gengoroh Tagame, Jiraiya, and Seizoh Ebisubashi have chapters devoted to their lives, philosophies, and works, and we’ve got an appropriately sized 30-page excerpt to give you a taste of what you can look forward to in December!
After full-page, full-color photo portraits of each artist opposite their illustration style, we’ve got nine pages of the first featured artist, Gengoroh Tagame (田亀源五郎), including four pages from his manga, “Do You Remember South Island P.O.W. Camp?”
The first sneak peek at Massive: Gay Erotic Manga and the Men Who Make It from Fantagraphics! Portraits and part of Tagame’s chapter. Enjoy!! ^_^
