Anne Ishii and Graham Kolbeins joined me and Brandon to talk about their Massive comic anthology; a collection of gay manga comics featuring a wide range of burly men. It’s a really interesting and important piece of work. Graham and Anne have brought together a diverse range of men doing very different but similar work in Japan. They also have the Massive Gay Apparel line, featuring a some sexy outfits and wares.

This week, they will be bringing Gengoroh Tagame to an event in New York and then as a featured artist at TCAF.

Anne and I did a really fun interview with Robin McConnell and Brandon Graham for Inkstuds
