VÉRITÉ: Comics from India and Japan

Dear Colleagues.

I am happy to announce the publication of the inaugural issue of VÉRITÉ, a 240-page comics anthology from Comix India and Studio Ekonte in Mumbai. Positioning itself as an Indian gekiga magazine, VÉRITÉ is distinguished by its mixed content of new comics mainly from India and classic short-form literary manga from Japan. The Japanese contributors for this volume are Tsuge Tadao, Katsumata Susumu, Yamamatsu Yukichi, and Tsuneyama Yoji. There is also an essay by me on the language of speed and vision within gekiga from the '50s and '60s.
