VIDEO: Yusuke Murata Draws One-Punch Man at International Manga Festa 2014
In mid-November, I attended the 2014 International Manga Festival (a.k.a. Kaigai Manga Festa) at Tokyo Big Sight. This was the third International Manga Festa, and it was the second one I attended in person.
I’ll post photos and a report of what I saw there after I get over my post-Japan trip daze, but in the meantime, enjoy this video of manga artist and International Manga Festa special guest Yusuke Murata (manga artist for Eyeshield 21 and One Punch Man, both available in English from Shonen Jump/VIZ Media).
I met him backstage after his talk with Jim Lee (Justice League artist and DC Comics Co-Publisher), and asked him to draw Saitama from One Punch Man for me — here’s what he did in about 5 minutes!
If you haven’t already done so, do yourself a favor and check out One-Punch Man by ONE and Yusuke Murata — the funniest, most dynamic superhero comic out there today. There are five volumes available now in digital format from VIZManga.com, for the Amazon Kindle, and on ComiXology too.
You can also watch more videos of Murata at work on his UStream channel, and follow him on Twitter at @NEBU_KURO.
