Starting tomorrow we’ll have Lewis Trondheim‘s Little Nothings back on our blog, posting a new strip every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Story of Lee, next steps

Recently I started writing the second volume of THE STORY OF LEE which I had already planned out in rough form. In fact, in true Star Wars fashion a bit of part 2 came out BEFORE part 1! The collection ‘Best New Manga vol 2′ a few years ago had a 25 page section from […]

Back in the UK

I’ve had a lot of contacts with Scotland recently, which is nice when I’m so far away. Most recent thing is that my old university just did a piece on me and will commission a comic about my time there for their magazine: http://www.gcu.ac.uk/alumni/newsevents/news/bydate/2011/1/name,21501,en.html But hey – I went to Edinburgh University too, and no […]

A Scotsman talks…

Just to extend on what I noted already regarding our recent lecture talk in Glasgow, me, Chie and Paul Gravett, involving pages from THE STORY OF LEE: I enjoyed that talk – it was odd to have my VOICE only appear back in my home country, while my BODY remained in Japan! But why not… […]

Talk at Glasgow

I came back from Glasgow, where I attended Glasgow Film Festival and talked about manga in general and my work, of course including the Story of Lee,  with Paul Gravett and Sean (via Skype!), last night. At the talk, I showed this image to the audience and explained my working process. When I create stories […]

Back from Tokyo

Back from a week in Tokyo, and a successful week it was (with one surprising exception, that i wont gossip about!). The manga great that i met there was none other than YOSHIRO TATSUMI, the originator of the mature manga GEKIGA style, way back in the mid 50’s. Myself, Asakawa-san and a couple of other […]
