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…)

I’m thrilled to announce that Spanish publisher Ediciones Kraken (an imprint of Ediciones Jaguar and Spanish home to and Alan Moore and Jose Villarrubia’s masterpiece, The Mirror of Love) will be publishing the Spanish edition of Dolltopia!

On April 12th I received the International Manga Award for Dolltopia! It was at a small ceremony and dinner with Deputy Consul General Yasuhisa Kawamura and Consul Masakazu Kigure. What a great experience! It was so interesting to spend time with diplomats and share our thoughts on manga being a worldwide culture, we also discussed how artists can help with the current crisis in Japan. It was wonderful and I feel incredibly honored. Photo above by Matt Loux.
