Author, translator of book on underground manga interviewed
The ComiPress manga information site has finished posting an authorized English translation of Manga Zombie, a 1997 book by "fringe culture" researcher Takeo Udagawa about underground manga artists. The site also posted interviews with Udagawa and translator John Gallagher. The two talk about how the translation project came together and what has happened to the profiled artists and the manga field as a whole in the past decade. The two also mention their hopes that a publisher would be interested in printing a full English translation. (The online translation covers only part of the entire book.)
