Excerpt:

"An English translation of Nejishiki (Screw-Style),
a radically surrealistic manga by Yoshiharu Tsuge,
was printed in the 250th issue of U.S. monthly The Comics Journal.
It was the first time that the magazine, which usually contains
only writings about comics, had carried a manga.

The Comics Journal is a long-standing periodical that has been
providing information and criticism on comics for more than 20 years.
The magazine is highly esteemed as a vehicle for a new aspect of U.S.
journalism. For example, it carried a feature story focusing on
cartoonists' reactions to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in 2001.

But this was not the first time that Tsuge's manga had been translated
into English. In 1985, his Akai Hana (Red Flowers) was carried in
issue No. 7 of RAW, an avant-garde comics magazine edited by New York-
based cartoonist Art Spiegelman, who later won a Pulitzer Prize
for his book-length comics Maus.


Laters. =)
