出版物紹介: Shigeru Sugiura: Last of the Mohicans

Last of the MohicansRyan Holmberg氏が翻訳及び序説を手がけられた「Sugiura Shigeru: Last of the Mohicans」が出版されました。Ryan Holmberg氏は、20世紀ジャパン・リサーチ・アワードの2011-2012年度の受賞者でもあります。この本は、杉浦茂氏の漫画「モヒカン族の最後」(“The Last of the Mohicans” James Fenimore Cooper作. からヒントを得た)の英語訳本です。


“‘Sugiura Shigeru and His Mohicans’ describes how this artist’s encounter with “ten-cent” comics after the war overhauled his practice in manifold ways, focusing on the many Westerns he produced during the Occupation period. A couple of images from Sugiura’s first manga Western, The Adventuresome Ben (Bōken benchan, 1947), a rare book known to be held only by the Prange, will be included for illustrational purposes. Research on the history of adaptations of James Fenimore Cooper’s novel during the Occupation was also conducted at the Prange.”

Amazon.comによると、PictureBox社は第二次世界大戦後の日本で大量生産された漫画を、”Ten Cent Manga”『10セント漫画』シリーズとして展開していく予定だそうです。この「Sugiura Shigeru: Last of the Mohicans」はこのシリーズの第一作目です。
