Making a Living in Manga in Japan with Felipe Smith
Lost in Translation
The North American publisher Digital Manga reached its goal of raising US$3,950 for an English-language reprint of Osamu Tezuka's Swallowing the Earth manga on Friday. Digital Manga published this book for mature readers in 2009, but the book has since gone out of print.
The publisher had said on that "printing and delivery should take just 30-60 days" after reaching its pledge target on the Kickstarter fundraising website. People who offered pledges will receive various "rewards," depending on how much they pledged.
