Nina first made a splash into the manga scene with a single image she called “Simpsonzu”—an illustration of the entire Simpsons cast, drawn in a manga style. The image caught the attention and imagination of the comics blogosphere—as well as the attention of Bongo Comics. Impressed with Nina's work, they offered her a position as a penciler for comic book series such as The Simpsons and Futurama.
Matsumoto's work was recognized at Comic-Con International at San Diego in July 2009, when she won an Eisner Award for best short story for her contribution to The Simpsons' Treehouse of Terror #14, "Murder He Wrote." The story, created along with Ian Boothby and Andrew Pepoy, was a Simpsons parody inspired by the popular thriller manga, Death Note.
On Suvudu.com Matsumoto will discuss the her work as an artist and the story behind her acclaimed original English-language manga, Yokaiden. The second volume of Yokaiden, published by Del Rey Manga, an imprint of the Random House Publishing Group, will be released on Tuesday, November 24.
