Bat-Manga!

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?

Oh yeah, this Bat-Manga book by Chip Kidd is gonna be awesome! Beside reprinting a bunch of Japanese stories it's also gonna have a lot of color photos of the cool vintage 1960's Batman Toys from Japan. I can't wait!!
