Tomorrow, November 24, at 3 PM Eastern, Nina Matsumoto will be the guest at a live chat hosted by suvudu.com, Random House’s sci-fi/manga blog. Nina is the author of Yokaiden, an Original English Language manga. The second volume of the series is due out tomorrow.
Nina first became famous online for her manga-styled drawing of the Simpsons cast, in case you’re wondering why the name looks familiar, and that led to her working on the official Simpsons comic, where she shared an Eisner Award (with writer Ian Boothby and inker Andrew Pepoy) for Best Short Story for “Murder He Wrote” in The Simpsons’ Treehouse of Terror #14. The story was inspired by Death Note.Similar Posts: Two Manga Review Links: Hero Tales and Vampire Knight § From the Front Lines: Nina Paley on Kids Reading Free Manga § Do Awards Mean Anything? § MOCCA Will Eisner Week Panel Next Week § Death Note: L, change the WorLd on DVD, SF Cinema
