On Sunday October 17th, 16 million people will get to meet Santa Inoue
, Japan's premiere hip-hop manga creator, when he helps to create a dream on ABC's # 1 television series: Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
Perfectly-timed to TOKYOPOP
's North American debut of Inoue's book, TOKYO TRIBES
, this high-profile primetime television appearance is sure to acquaint the rest of the world with a manga creator already so very well known in Japan.TOKYO TRIBES
, available in stores now, is a vivid, somewhat surreal vision of urban youth that transcends genres and conventions, and raises the bar for manga storytelling. A hard-hitting, fantastical tale of Tokyo street thugs battling it out in the concrete sprawl of Japan's capital, Tokyo Tribes
is now making its debut on North American bookshelves. Inoue's seminal series has done so well in Japan that it has already generated a catalog of urban merchandise and apparel.
