Comics! Cartoons! Anime! Manga! Graphic novels! Video games! This vibrant and engaging book, catalog to a landmark exhibition, celebrates the variety and growing significance of visual pop culture. Stunningly illustrated with eye-popping art, KRAZY! investigates the uniqueness of these forms while considering the ways they interconnect. Curated by many of the artists who first brought these forms to the public's attention, this volume features commentary and interviews with Maus author Art Spiegelman, SimCity creator Will Wright, and Canadian comic book author and illustrator Seth, along with Tim Johnson (codirector of Antz and Over the Hedge), Kiyoshi Kusumi (a global authority on manga), and media theory critic Toshiya Ueno. This pathbreaking volume crosses boundaries between the printed arts, films, and video games and analyzes the reciprocal influences between fields, highlighting the best of each. The energy and intensity of the images leap off every page, and the full experience of the exhibit itself comes alive in behind-the-scenes commentary by the contributors. KRAZY! is a dizzying introduction to the art forms that will dominate the new century.
