Death Note

Comixology Adds Huge Chunk of VIZ Media Manga To Its Library

Cgi0WSD

Good news, manga fans who prefer Comixology over all other digital comics platforms: it's now easier to get your VIZ Media manga fix. This seems to be part of VIZ's ongoing dedication to diversifying the platforms their digital manga is available on, which leaders at the company reported as important over a year ago. As of this week, VIZ has added 650 volumes - over 65 total series - to the Comixology library. These titles are from those originally published by Shogakukan in Japan. This brings the grand total of VIZ offerings up on Comixology to 190 series and 1,100 volumes. Plus, to celebrate this occasion, there's a sale on a few VIZ bundles to get your collection started or to continue building your collection.

‘Death Note: The Musical’ Is Coming To Japan; Listen To The First Song In English

death note

Death Note, Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata’s wildly popular tale of good, evil, and perfectly mussed hair, has been adapted into an anime, three live action movies, a prose novel, and various video games. In my foolishness, I’d thought we were done. I'd thought the consumption of 2007 anime clubs everywhere was enough to sate Death Note's ravenous appetite. But I was wrong—and, believe it or not, happily so. From April 6th to the 29th, Death Note The Musical will run at Tokyo’s Nissay Theater. Further performances have been scheduled in Osaka, Nagoya, and South Korea.

Whatever I’m Working On Is The Best Thing I’ve Done: An Interview With ‘Death Note’ Artist Takeshi Obata

obata-hed

Takeshi Obata is an icon. His work on the horror manga phenomenon Death Note, with writer Tsugumi Ohba, defined horror for a generation of comic fans. The manga Hikaru no Go, with Yumi Hotta, spurred the ancient board game Go to sudden contemporary popularity in 1998. Another Ohba collaboration, Bakuman -- a manga about the creation of manga -- has over 15 million copies in circulation. Obata also illustrated the manga adaptation of All You Need is Kill, a military science fiction light novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka that was recently adapted for the screen as Edge of Tomorrow.

And Obata's art is gorgeous. He handles Gothic triptychs and domestic scenes alike with incredible skill, bringing sociopaths, pop singers and teen artists to vibrant life. I keep copies of Death Note and Bakuman on my shelf of manga for "people who think they don’t like manga," because his work transcends the boundaries of fandom. He is a master, and he isn't even close to being done.

ComicsAlliance was thrilled to have the chance to speak with him at New York Comic Con 2014 about his work, his influences, and international success.
