The crew behind MASSIVE continues it’s trip down the coast (no joke there). Big, burly, lascivious, and soft around the edges:welcome to the hyper-masculine world of Japanese gay manga. Massive: Gay Erotic Manga and the Men Who Make It is a survey introduction to a diverse and important group of men responsible for some of the most emblematic gay manga drawn for fellow gay readers.
Fantom Comics of Washington D.C. invites you to visit this world for a night on Thursday, January 22nd when the editors and designers behind the anthology are celebrating the book’s release. Join Anne Ishii, Graham Kolbeins and Chip Kidd when the fun and book signing starts at 7pm. Whether you are previously a gay manga fan or just looking to dip your toe into the pool, Massive has something for everyone as the book also provides a rich background to each of the artists (from Gengoroh Tagame to Kazuhide Ichikawa to Inu Yoshi) and a brief history of gay erotic arts and illustration. From cartoony, emotional comics to sweaty, technical comics….you’ll not be left in a ‘blue-book’ state.
Be there or we’ll send some of Jiraiya’s cavemen after you!
