Dan Pink’s Adventures in Manga
Monday, October 6, 2008
What business lessons can Americans learn from the wild world of Japanese comics? In this provocative, entertaining and highly visual presentation, Japan Society Media Fellow and bestselling author Daniel Pink draws on his research in Japan as well as on his own efforts as a manga creator to take us inside the world of Japan’s dojinshi—amateur manga artists who remix and repurpose popular manga titles into new creations. Find out why these copyright-busting fans are actually helping the Japanese manga industry and get the reasoning behind Pink’s decision to create the first American business book in manga, The Adventures of Johnny Bunko: The Last Career Guide You’ll Ever Need.
Followed by a reception and book signing.
