First look at Fantagraphics’ Moto Hagio anthology
Publishers Weekly Comics Week has posted a generous preview of Moto Hagio’s A Drunken Dream and Other Stories. The book, which will be released next month, is the first full-length Hagio work to be published in the U.S. since 1981, although a few stories have been published individually, including one in issue 269 of The Comics Journal. (Translator Matt Thorn also interviewed her for that issue.) Hagio is one of the masters of shoujo manga, and A Drunken Dream collects ten of her short pieces ranging from 1970 to 2007, so readers can see both her early and her more mature work.
