NEWS: MASSIVE returns to TCAF 2014, with special guest Chip Kidd!

TCAF is very happy to welcome back the fine folks at MASSIVE.

MASSIVE is a line of gay manga-inspired products and imports brought to you by Anne Ishii and Graham Kolbeins. Together, and with the help of Chip Kidd, they are responsible for last year’s TCAF smash-hit The Passion of Gengoroh Tagame. They are also the team behind Massive: Gay Erotic Manga and the Men Who Make It, coming this Fall from Fantagraphics.  These books and apparel highlight the work of Japanese gay erotic artists like Gengoroh Tagame, Jiriaya, and Kazuhide Ichikawa.

And this year MASSIVE are bringing Chip Kidd back to TCAF!

Chip Kidd is an author, editor, and book designer who has made quite a lasting impression on the visual landscape of comics. He is well-known for his work with DC Comics (Batman: Death by Design), as well as his cover concepts for people like Osamu Tezuka and Charles Schulz. We were happy to have him last year for The Passion, and we’re happy to have him back for 2014.

AND! This year MASSIVE are sponsoring TCAF’s annual Queer Mixer!
