The First of Many


Ryan over at Same Hat! Same Hat! had a post yesterday that I thought was really neat. A friend of his graced him with a copy of a 1978 edition of Keiji Nakazawa’s Barefoot Gen, which it seems pretty safe to say is most likely the first English translated manga. With handwritten text and an existance age of forty years, I’d definately say Ryan’s got himself a piece of manga industry there.

Ryan also asks for any readers who know of a possible contender, for that position as number one, to comment on the posting. I’m interested to see if there’s anything to challenge for the role of first.
