Hoshino’s original work was featured in a Room 3 display in 2009. Nicole Rousmaniere, British Museum, discusses the creation of this manga and places it in the larger context of the medium. Introduced by Paul Gravett, Director of Comica Festival and editor of 1001 Comics You Must Read Before You Die.
