Gateway to Comics on tor.com - 0 views

  •  
    In the Gateway to Comics feature, Stephen Aryan focuses on reviewing/recapping a "gateway" trade or issue to a genre, series, or character. Meaning you will be able to pick it up without having read any other comic before, and with no prior knowledge of the characters. This is the golden rule. (A lot of these gateway picks will be first volumes of trades, but not always.) He tackles a range of genres, such as western, sci-fi, slice of life, horror, adventure, biography, comedy, history, and many more.

Morning International Comic Competition M.I.C.C. - 2 views

  •  
    Interesting: changing the name from "manga" to "comics" to reflect the desired scope of submissions.
    "While this is the fourth time that this competition has been held, it is the first since its name was changed from the Morning International Manga Competition (M.I.M.C.) to the Morning International Comic Competition (M.I.C.C.). Throughout the previous three competitions, we found ourselves keenly noticing something. While in Japan the word "manga" (マンガ) encompasses many broad genres and is still home to innovation and freshness, the term "manga" abroad refers to works of fantasy that are drawn in a specific style, and further confined to a small genre.
    This time, we saw an immediate change resulting from the contest's revised name, as we received many submissions that could be classified as "seinen manga," the genre that our magazine Morning primarily publishes. Not only that, we also received many highly exciting works with stories and visual designs that we could not imagine ever seeing from creators within the Japanese industry. We value this quality, as seen by the prize-winning works."

Toys, Games, and Comics in Asia: Adaptation, Convergence, and Challenges - A Scholarly ... - 0 views

  •  
    Over the last twenty years or so comic books and video games have been adapted in to movies. Novels have been adapted into comic books. Many of these products have been licensed as toys. Indeed two Singaporeans are actively engaged in such adaptations: Sonny Liew is working on a comic book version of Jane Austin's novel Sense and Sensibility for Marvel Comics, and Eric Khoo is doing a film adaptation of Yoshihiro Tatsumi comic A Drifting Life. Increasing there are convergences between media forms and products.

    This conference held in conjunction with the Singapore Toys, Games and Comics Convention examines the issues involved in these developments from a scholarly perspective with a focus on Asia.
