“Early manga translations in the West” conference paper published

In November last year, I gave a talk at Comics Forum in Leeds on “Early manga translations in the West: underground cult or mainstream failure?”

That paper is now online at the Comics Forum website: http://comicsforum.org/2014/07/14/early-manga-translations-in-the-west-underground-cult-or-mainstream-failure-by-martin-de-la-iglesia/.

If you always wanted to know what my PhD research is about, this is the place to go.

Unfortunately, Dark Horse didn’t give me permission to use images from Lone Wolf and Cub in my Comics Forum paper…

Upcoming talk: early manga translations in the West

Lone Wolf and Cub #3The Comics Forum conference in Leeds is around the corner again (21-22 November), and this time I’m going to present a paper. It’s titled “Early manga translations in the West: underground cult or mainstream failure?”, and it will cover some aspects of my PhD research on manga reception primarily in the 1980s. I hope to publish the paper soon after the conference – more information to follow.
