Sweet, two things I plan to give Vertical money for! I can't resist a single Tezuka manga after all.

I'm actually behind on giving them money, still need to get my Adolf books (xmas/bday methinks the problem will be fixed)

North American publisher Vertical announced at its New York Comic Con panel on Friday that it has licensed... Kyoko Okazaki's Helter Skelter psychological manga.

YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES

Best [expletive] manga license in forever. I was so hopeful for Okazaki when Ed Chavez said that he was a fan, and Vertical pulls through. God yes.

Helter Skelter is such an important, amazing manga. It's incredible. It's clear she was a big influence on artists like josei artists like Moyoco Anno and Erica Sakurazawa, and she deserves to be recognized in the U.S. as one of the most important, pioneering artists for manga. Really hope it does well for Vertical, and we see more of her works (River's Edge, Pink, etc.) here.

Thank you so much, Vertical, for licensing this.
