Ed Chavez has announced a new Vertical Vednesday set for this Wednesday, January 13 at Kinokuniya NYC’s Cafe Zaiya (6th ave between 40th and 41st sts in Manhattan), where he will be discussing a new Tezuka title acquisition by Vertical Inc (publishers of To Terra and the upcoming Chi’s Sweet Home), as well as the state of the industry as the new year unfolds.
Now normally I would be telling you about how insightful Ed Chavez is in regards to the manga industry without actually being able to give you examples, but luckily for all of us the Reverse Thieves posted their interview with the man today, and you will get to see how his mind works. Among the topics are Chi’s Sweet Home, the pros and cons of flipping manga, and the nature of translation itself. It’s a really good interview that I recommend everyone read. It’s also quite long, so get comfortable before you start delving into his mind.
