My first comic book in English, Passion of Gengoroh Tagame: Master of Gay Erotic Manga, was published in 2013 from Picture Box. But the publisher stopped their business, so the book also had been out of print for years.
Now the book is reissued as Expanded Hardcover Edition, to change the publisher from Picture Box to Bruno Gmünder. Here it is!
This big, thick and heavy new edition is newly designed by maestro Chip Kidd. How it is cool, check the photos and video below!
And on this Expanded Hardcover Edition, there are more some ‘Don’t miss it!’ points for who already have old edition.
1) Newly added 16 pages color illustrations includes new one can’t see any other books and websites!
2) My new text essay for this expanded edition with my 30 years memory as a gay comic artist, my current feelings and for my future.
3) The printing quality gets much better than the old edition. On the old edition, there were some pages with moiré and unclear drawing lines. On this new expanded edition, these errors are corrected. Every drawings are printed more beautiful than before. Please compare the pages of Exorcism and Country Doctor of new edition with old ones!
So I’m very happy to be able to reissue this book. And I sincerely wish that it is happy thing for my fans too and you may enjoy it!
