Kickstarter: Art Spiegelman and a $250k stretch goal
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Shimura TakakoMoto HagioMatt ThornmangaKickstarterInio Asano 2 Dec 2013 4:14 AM
Thank you so much! We hit $200,000 yesterday and since then more great cartoonists have donated to the cause. The Kickstarter campaign will end Thursday morning at 10am, PST.

If the Fantagraphics Kickstarter hits a total of $250,000 we will increase our line of literary and experimental manga translation. We have been printing the fantastic Shimura Takako's Wandering Son series since 2011 (translated by Matt Thorn), a perennial title on the ALA Rainbow List for teen reading, in addition to Moto Hagio, who is widely considered the most beloved shōjo manga artist of all time. Hagio's The Heart of Thomas created a new genre of manga while the collected stories in A Drunken Dream  show off her masterful storytelling. This February we are proud to be publishing Inio Asano's Nijigahara Holograph, a mysterious and brooding tale, also available for pre-order on the Kickstarter. We want to translate even more per season, bringing English readers only the finest of manga to grace their bookshelves.

Here is one such beauty listed as SPIEGELMAN 10: a wrap around cover from a Boris Vian book, Vercoquin and the Plankton. Circa 1982 ($80)
