Coming soon -- "Stupid Guy Goes to India"

We're happy to announce that sometime in late 2011 or early 2012 we'll be releasing Yukichi Yamamatsu's 2008 non-fiction manga インドへ馬鹿がやって来た, in a new English translation by Kumar Sivasubramanian. 

It's the hilarious true story of Yukichi's first journey to India--his first trip out of Japan, knowing no English and no Indian language--and his slightly insane mission to introduce classic Samurai manga to Hindi readers, even if it meant sitting on a mat on the Delhi pavement and selling them himself.

Here's Bharath Murthy with a short strip about Yukichi.

Look alive there, boys! Keep your eyes peeled!

Tambu Main Bamboo Ke Baad

Hi all,

Wieden+ Kennedy in Delhi has a pretty fab-sounding exhibit of vintage A movie posters on until September 17th. If you're in Delhi, go check it out... read more here. (Apparently they are selling the posters from between Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 50,000. Gotta start collecting!)

If you like this sort of thing you may also dig Delhi Calm author and Pao Collective member Vishwajyoti Ghosh's superawesome postcard book Times New Roman & Countrymen, in which he uses bits and pieces of adult movie poster artwork along with the actual text of Delhi newspaper classified ads and a wide variety of other colourful things to make lovely images like these:
