Kaigai Manga Festa Report!

Sunday, December 9th, 2012

Matt and I are back from our honeymoon and I’m finally getting some time to start writing about our amazing trip to Japan!  We went for two weeks, visiting Fukuoka, Nara, Osaka, and Tokyo. A highlight of our Tokyo trip was exhibiting in the Artist Alley of Kaigai Manga Festa (seems like their site is being updated now, but here is the official twitter), the first ever international comics show in Japan which was put on in conjunction with the quarterly indie comic event, Comitia! Originally, we were going to exhibit with our friend Yuuko Koyama at Comitia as I had done in the past (full post on that here), but when the Festa was announced we felt we should be there to represent our aspect of American comics. Luckily we were able to get a table and it worked out great! (more…)
