The ComiPress manga information site is posting online an authorized English translation of Manga Zombie, a 1997 book by "subculture researcher" Takeo Udagawa on 31 artists that created underground manga after World War II, but before widespread commercialization changed the field in the Eighties. Translator John Gallagher will post chapters from the 186-page book on a semi-regular basis. The profiled fringe artists include Norihiro Nakajima (Astro Kyūdan/Astro Baseball Team), Yoshiteru Takano (Akanbō Teikoku/Baby Empire), and Tarō Bonten (Konketsuji/Mixed-Blood Child Rika).
