about

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.

Bruce Grenville is senior curator at the Vancouver Art Gallery and coordinating curator of this exhibit. He has organized many exhibitions, including Massive Change, a major international show by Bruce Mau Design and the Institute without Boundaries.
