Kaigai Manga Festa is the first ever Tokyo exhibition of international comics and graphic novels. It will be held adjacent to the popular Comitia original doujinshi event (no parody/tribute work, only original creations!). The festival is expected to draw tens of thousands of attendees and comics authors interested in international comics!
UDON Entertainment will be exhibiting at this event! Publisher Erik Ko and Marketing Director Chris Butcher will be on hand, alongside artists Steven Cummings (Uglies), Omar Dogan (Girl Seven, Street Fighter), Dax Gordine (Bravoman), and Long Vo (Street Fighter, Go Ninja). The UDON crew joins a truly stellar guest list that includes Katsuhiro Otomo (Akira), Naoki Urasawa (Pluto, 20th Century Boys), and Benoit Peeters and Francois Shuiten (Cities of the Fantastic).
In addition, UDON will be producing a brand new, original doujinshi, “NUDO,” featuring new pin-ups by Omar Dogan, Long Vo, Steven Cummings, Joe Vriens, Chamba, Dax Gordine, Genzoman, Edwin Huang, Eric Vedder, Robaato, James Ghio, Andrew Hou, Noa Ikeda, Jay Zhou, and Joe Ng. A special treat for UDON fans overseas!
Hopefully we’ll get to see some of our international fans in a few weeks!
