9780520257849: KRAZY!: The Delirious World of Anime + Comics + Video Games + Art

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.

About the Author:

Bruce Grenville is Senior Curator at the Vancouver Art Gallery and coordinating curator for this exhibit.

Review:

“Excellent catalog.” (New York Times 2009-03-13)

“Leaves the reader eager to explore aspects of each topic in greater depth.” (World Literature Today 2010-11-09)

“What’s interesting about Krazy! is that it explores these art forms [and] present[s] them in a way in that forces the reader to never look at anime, manga, or video games [in the same way] again. . . . Bold, beautiful full-colored pictures illustrate it to give the reader the impression that they are at the exhibit themselves. . . . Embrace the kraziness.” (Pop Matters 2008-08-14)

“The parade of animators and cartoonists is impressive. . . . Heart-stopping.” (Metro Newspapers 2008-08-13)

“It is fascinating and satisfying to read essays that treat these forms of expression with the weight of both serious analysis and passionate appreciation.” (Arcade Journal 2009-06-01)

“A vivid testament to the efficacy of that approach and leaves the reader eager to explore aspects of each topic in greater depth.” (Rob Vollmar World Literature Today 2009-01-01)
