Bonus Manga Out Loud Podcast Discussing DMP’s Barbara Kickstarter
Ed and I were joined by Lissa Pattillo and Alex Hoffman to discuss the DMP Kickstarter to publish Osamu Tezuka’s Barbara in a bonus episode of the Manga Out Loud podcast.
We put this together quickly, while the topic was fresh in everyone’s mind. Our special guest is Ben Applegate, who organizes the DMP Kickstarters, and I very much appreciated his willingness to tell us more about the company’s vision for these projects, as well as providing some print run numbers. His approach addressed several of my concerns about what this strategy might mean for the industry in the long term.
