The Story of Lee – digital version!

Comixology, the digital comics site for ipad, iphone, android, etc now has my own book with NBM on it – The Story of Lee. Out this week, just in time for Xmas! You can download the digital version for only $7.99 (a mere snip, the paper one costs $11.99). It’s my first English language digital book, although I have one out already in Japanese. 150 pages, mature manga story, art by Chie Kutuswada. There is also a 12 page free preview there on Comixology, as a taster. Nice!

“Lee, living in Hong Kong, meets Matt, a fine young Scot. Their relationship becomes stronger by the day, despite their deep cultural differences. But there is Lee’s dad to contend with who views this affair very suspiciously. And there is another contender for Lee’s heart, a young Chinese man, whose jealousy takes on twinges of xenophobia. Will Lee and Matt’s relationship successfully cross the cultural divide and overcome the negative odds?”

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. Although also writing 'western' style graphic novels, such as adaptations of classical novels, he often works with Japanese and Chinese artists on manga style books. 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).
