Ah, the mythic confluence of all things nerdy: Random House is publishing a book called Bat-Manga, edited by Chip Kidd (of course). Here’s the story:
[T]he book features Batman and Robin as you’ve never seen them before — in original Japanese stories from 1966 and 1967, written and drawn by Manga master Jiro Kuwata, creator of 8-Man! — collected and translated for the very first time, over forty years after they originally appeared.
UnbeLIEVable. Why was I not told of this sooner?
