9781553653547: Krazy!: The Delirious World of Anime + Comics + Video Games + Art

A groundbreaking, international review of comic art, graphic novels, animated cartoons, manga, anime, video games and visual art.

The public's appetite for comics, animated cartoons, anime, manga, graphic novels and computer/video games is at an all-time high. Visual pop culture in all its forms now dominates the globe. KRAZY! is a celebration of the growing significance of this delirious visual culture.

Organized into seven sections, one for each art form, the book highlights the greatest works of each genre, as chosen by seven great practitioners. The energy and intensity of the images leaps off every page, enhanced by behind-the-scenes commentary by such heavyweights as Art Spiegelman, Will Wright and Canadian comic book author and illustrator, Seth. Other contributors include Tim Johnson,! director of Antz and Over the Hedge, Kiyoshi Kusumi, a global authority on manga, and Toshiya Ueno, a highly regarded media theorist and critic. Published to accompany a landmark exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery, KRAZY!! is a dizzying introduction to the art forms that will dominate the new century.

This book was published in partnership with the Vancouver Art Gallery.

Review:

"The parade of animators and cartoonists is impressive...Heart-stopping." (Metro Active 2008-08-13)

"A gorgeous coffee-table tome by any standard, KRAZY! is nonetheless hard to evaluate. A detail of Pac-Man makes us consider the game as a visual statement. A finished comic-book page by artist Kevin Huizenga accompanied by his sketchbook entry for the same shows how fully fleshed out his ideas are even in the nascent stage. And there is manga galore. If it's not always clear how all this fits together, it's still hard not to be impressed." (Quill & Quire 2008-06-24)

"There is so much to see in the display that by the end you have trouble keeping it all separate in your head. Having this book is a wonderful supplement to that experience...The presence of these art forms surround us on a daily basis and it is a delight to see them recognized for their artistic merit in addition to the entertainment value they each offer." (North Shore News 2008-08-01)
