The Comics Journal Special Edition focuses this time on the phenomenal manga (Japanese comics) invasion. Our cover feature is manga superstar Hideshi Hino, whose 30-year career and inimitable style have put him at the forefront of Japan's horror genre. Our manga section also has essential interviews with or profiles of the most notable artists, including Yoshiharu Tsuge, Surhiro Moruo, Saseo Ono, Yoshihiro Tatsumi, and the undisputed king of manga, Astro Boy creator Osamu Tezuka! Meanwhile, Vaughn Bodé, the legendary and enduring underground cartoonist (and current inspiration of graffiti artists everywhere) is given the full treatment with an illuminating profile by Bob Levin (The Pirates & the Mouse), a critical essay by Donald Phelps (Reading the Funnies), and exclusive excerpts from his private diaries. Also, Bill Blackbeard profiles the madcap cartoonist Milt Gross, and Mark Tessier reports on the Montreal comics scene. Finally, there's our renowned comics section whose theme this issue is "Seduction," which includes stories from Rick Altergott, Ho Che Anderson, Andrice Arp, Gabrielle Bell, Marc Bell, Ariel Bordeaux, David Collier, Colleen Coover, Jeremy Eaton, Mary Fleener, Rick Geary, Bill Griffith, Matti Hagelberg, Richard Hahn, Leah Hayes, Gilbert Hernandez, Jaime Hernandez, Paul Hornschemeier, Igort, Gerald Jablonski, Ted Jouflas, Megan Kelso, Peter Kuper, Carol Lay, Lorna Miller, David Paleo, Arnold Roth, Michael Sloan, Spain Rodriguez, Frank Stack, Carol Swain, and Ken Takahama, not to mention a back-cover illustration by Tony Millionaire!
