From The Comics Journal: The First Japanese Manga Spider-Man: Supaidāman



From The Comics Journal:

We are pleased and excited to bring you something very special today: a 1995 essay by Ono Kōsei, one of the founders of American comic book fandom in Japan, reflecting upon his role in the making of the dark and startling 1970-71 Spider-Man manga series by Ikegami Ryōichi, a Garo contributor later famous for works like Crying Freeman and Sanctuary. This piece sheds a lot of light on one of the most striking chapters in manga and Marvel history. Translated by Jon Holt & Saki Hirozane. Don’t miss it!!
