South China Morning Post.

The Hong Kong based newspaper ‘The South China Morning Post’ will feature an interview with me (or someone who looks a lot like me anyway) s. I discuss The Story of Lee a lot in that. Of course, because the story is SET in HK! That is coming out the first week of 2011 i think.

I’m looking forward to seeing The Story of Lee book itself – its on the way to me now. This will be my 15th published book so far, but the joy of seeing the finished book is still with me – and hopefully always will be!

My other book ‘Ax:alternative manga’ continues to do really well. I was just listed as UK chain store Forbidden Planet’s best manga of 2010, and critic Deb Aoki noted that no less then TEN critics lists feature it – making it, by her count, the 4th most highly praised book of all manga published this
year!

nice…

SEAN MICHAEL WILSON is a comic book writer from Scotland, who now lives and works in Japan. He has had more than a dozen books published so far, from a variety of US, UK and Japanese publishers.

He is the editor of the influential collection 'Ax: alternative manga' (Top Shelf). Currently he is writing books for Kodansha International, being the only British comic book writer working with them. He has attempted to do comic books that are different from the normal superhero/fantasy brands, working with a variety of 'non-comic book' organisations in the process. His book with War on Want, 'Iraq:Operation Corporate Takeover' was reported on by a variety of mainstream agencies - such as Reuters, CCTV in China and several Middle Eastern magazines. His main influences remain British and American creators - such as Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, Eddie Campbell and Harvey Pekar. 'The Story of Lee' is his second published book working with artist Chie Kutsuwada, the first being 'Hagakure' (Kodansha International).

CHIE KUTSUWADA was born and brought up in Japan. After graduating from the Royal College of Art, she now lives and works in London as a manga artist. She also attends some manga-related events and runs manga workshops at schools, libraries, and museums around the UK, such as at British Libraries and the Victoria and Albert Museum. She usually creates story and illustration on her own like King of a Miniature Garden (2007), her first manga, but also works with story writers, such as on the adaptation of 'As You Like It' (2008 SelfMadeHero, London) by Shakespeare and the Japanese classic tale 'Hagakure' by T. Yamamoto (adapted by Sean Michael Wilson, 2010 Kodansha International, Tokyo).
