posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Gen Manga Entertainment announced on Thursday that manga creator Nagumo (Radio de Go!, Let's Eat Ramen) will attend New York Comic Con. Nagumo will hold autograph sessions and Q&A sessions daily at the convention at Gen Manga's booth.
Nagumo created Let's Eat Ramen (pictured at right) earlier this year exclusively for the eighth issue of the English manga anthology Gen. Gen Manga Entertainment describes the work as follows:
Let's Eat Ramen is the story of Saeki, a girl who loves ramen noodles. At last, she thinks that she has finally found the perfect ramen shop, but the problem is the shop is completely full of old regulars and she can't get in. Will the timid Saeki ever summon the willpower to reach out and get the ramen that she desperately wants?
Gen is a digital magazine with limited-edition print copies that features Japanese underground artists. The magazine launched last year.
Nagumo debuted with his three-volume Radio de Go! manga in Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Carat magazine in 2007. His Water Girls manga is currently running in the same magazine.
New York Comic Con will be held at the Javits Convention Center from October 11-14. The convention will also host actress/singer Yuu Asakawa, Blogger/TV host Danny Choo, Crypton Future Media, artist Yoshitaka Amano, Sunrise producer Kazuhiko Tamura, Young King Ours editor-in-chief Masahiro Ohno, and manga creators Moyoco Anno, Masakazu Katsura, Toshio Maeda, and Masakazu Ishiguro.
