There are a lot of things I love about manga but one of the best things about a lot of manga is the absence of a status uoA little over twelve years ago I began a love affair with manga That s as broad and general as saying that a little over thirty years ago I began a love affair with women It s just general and non committal enough to be nearly entirely meaningless Really it probably began the moment I picked up my first issue of Power Pack as a fourth grader and realized that comics stories could present evolving storylines Maybe it began earlier when I read The Chronicles of Narnia as a second grader and realized that stories could be long could skip around chronologically and didn t even have to follow a single character throughout Maybe my love affair with manga began the moment I first tied a string of letters together to form a word just like my love affair with women began that moment in kindergarten when I saw one of the second grade girls in a choir performance and her hair was just just perfect and my heart caught Neither were what they would be the girl was not a woman and the word was not manga But the seeds were there The origin has a storyI began a broaching familiarity with manga early on I read Area 88 occasionally in the early early 90s I read Akira as Marvel released them across the late 80s and early 90s I picked up a handful of Robotech comics which I now realize probably don t actually count at all But it wasn t until the early to mid 2000s that I began actively purchasing manga along with all my other comics and graphic novels My tastes had yet to refine1 1In ten years I m sure to read this and scoff at the idea that I would consider my tastes to have refined by age 40 and I was simply picking up series just to you know just to see Love Hina Naruto Death Note Plenty of single volumes from those piles of abortive manga detritus that Tokyo Pop was shooting out like a t shirt cannon with unlimited ammunition Gothic SportsAmong all the things I love most about manga22Now may be as grand as any place to remark that I don t typically refer to manga as manga I just call them comics I don t typically say graphic novels either I don t find the differentiation usually very helpful I will however occasionally condescend simply because others will find the shorthand useful While I don t want to underscore in any sense that Japanese comics are fundamentally different from American Canadian Hungarian Korean or French comics there is some small social sense in which our perception of Japanese comics differs So to that end I ll begrudgingly speak of manga Otherwise it s merely a marketing category and I don t actually think those do anybody any good is that these books often allow for and sometimes actively pursue deeply evolving story worlds Status uo may be decimated at any time Marvel and DC superhero books don t actually feature Character in any honest sense of the term Instead they feature storytelling engines Or maybe better storytelling prompts A reader of Spider Man in 1970 can or less jump into Spider Man in 2010 and pretty much know exactly what s going on Only the trivialities like who is punching Spider Man now have changed Same with Superman Batman Captain America Maybe not the X Men But then again Now take something like 20th Century Boys If you read through volume 4 and then skipped to volume 8 you would both have no idea what was going on and have no way of figuring it out The world shifted Same with Akira Otomo reinvents his entire storyline at least four times throughout the book Chapter 6 looks entirely different from chapter 14 which looks entirely different from chapter 19 It s exciting and the books often aren t afraid to change everything along the path to their finale While Spider Man is merely a series of tacitly connected short stories set in the same world and using the same set of characters33It often feels like these stories are the product of a creative writing prompt that generates a pile of stories and then those stories are just published one after another Then the writers in the study group get another writing prompt that is almost identical to the first and are asked to do that same thing again It occasionally generates some good stories but there s not really any reason to keep following the series You can really just wait until you hear about a particularly good story or anthology and pick up that one you can sink your teeth into the stories featured in many of these manga And if you re going to read them you ve got to keep up Biomega and Knights of Sidonia writhe and shift and go all over the place Same with Monster and 20th Century Boys And Negima and Children of the Sea and Flowers of Evil and even Death NoteWhich brings us to Balak Sanlaville and Viv s Last Man seriesWith volume 1 Last Man revealed itself to be a superbly designed and deftly paced Fight comic betraying a certain connection to one of the modes by which shounen manga likes to assert itself In a way that first volume felt like it could be a wonderful extrapolation of Negima s Mahora Martial Arts Tournament It was beautifully scripted and fluidly rendered Still not being a particular fan of fight comics I wondered how the creators could develop the story of a tournament over a full twelve volumes the length of the series Volume 2 answers that in the best way following in one of my favourite manga traditions by decimating what I had imagined was status uo By the end of the volume we realize that the last two volumes are mere prologue for what should prove to be a much larger satisfying story And I am blisteringly excited to watch it unfoldGiven the opportunity to ask a few uestions of the creators I broach the uestion of manga uestion I ve read in other interviews that the storytelling for Last Man is at least somewhat influenced by manga What aspects of manga in particular are you drawn to and which have you woven into Last Man Will we see a manga style time skip Answer HA Busted with the time skip Well what we like about manga is how they handle the storytelling It s very cinematic You have the time to create a universe and at the same time you are very close to the characters emotions The pacing of the story how the panel are laid out that s a huge inspiration to us And of course the boobs Japanese artists draw the best boobsWith volume 1 of the series we note a heavy emphasis on Hope as a thematic direction By volume 2 we re seeing the fruit of that and then an evolving exploration of Loyalty Aldana has at least a temporary loyalty to his young partner Adrian and an abiding loyalty to his own sex drive Elorna s ties to Gregorio are tested The ueen gives up rooting for the Hometeam to cheer for the Visitors A pair of lovers are one of the combat teams and have their dedication to each other measured Marianne has her own interests that bind her to certain paths of action And Adrian is of course guileless and forthright in his passions These loyalties propel the action in volume 2 and will hold conseuences for the remainder of the seriesOne of the things I hoped to convey in my review of the first volume but pretty much entirely didn t touch on at all is just how entirely exciting this book is There is so much going on One page leads into the next with so much pregnant purpose that it virtually becomes a magnificent feat to put the book down before arriving at its final page When I finished volume 1 I thought Wow omigosh I cannot wait to read volume 2 At the end of volume 2 I thought Wow omigosh I cannot wait to read volume 3 And it s not just because these end on cliffhangers Because they don t Not really It s just that you don t want the story to end You want to devour it all You want to inhabit their world and see how everything shakes out Is Adrian going to have to fight Elorna Will Aldana punch out a woman What if Adrian has to fight the likes of Cristo Canyon Will the honey badger have a speaking role Why is Adrian s mom on a motorcycle on the cover to volume 3Obviously there may be some readers who won t be excited by the book Hypothetically they must exist Even if only in our imaginations But in the small segment of my friends to whom I ve leant the book nobody does not devour it My wife who is even less invested in fight comics than me loves it My co worker who probably has an unhealthy interest in comics featuring terrible fights he adores Jojo s Bizarre Adventure and pushes it on me regularly loves it I love it You probably will as well Last Man is the ongoing series that most excites me at the moment uestion Do you see Last Man as wholly an adventure Or as an exploration of ideas in addition to being a kick ass compulsively readable adventure Or something else Answer The initial idea was to create a huge adventure Wait No Basically the initial idea was to make our personal Star Wars Wait actually no To be honest we wanted to make a porn comic book Then we chose to go for a big non porn adventure we don t really remember how and why that transition was made But in the end we saw this as an opportunity to create THE comic book we always wanted to make The kind of book that we loved as teenagers So there are a lot of nods to what we liked from Die Hard to Fist of the North StarEven a cursory read offers ample evidence that Last Man would have actually made a hot hentei comic had the creators wished to move in that direction Viv s and Sanlaville draw ridiculously good looking people who exhibit a sensuous kind of physicality For all its PG rated coyness4 Last Man is a pretty sexy book Aldana is all muscles and masculinity and has a bathing scene that pretty obviously smokes I don t know whether it s intended to appeal to the female gaze or the gay male gaze though the two seem to increasingly blend and blur but I doubt there are many from either side of the coin who will be sad All that aside though I m glad they decided against making a porn comic because then I wouldn t be talking about the book here And this is such a lovely exciting book that I need to talk about it The artists portray so much elegance of motion that even heavy stomping oxen men move with a kind of liuid energy Certainly like a crashing wave than something gentle but still More lithe figures like Adrian exhibit the same sense of weightlessness as the dancers in Viv s earlier work Polina The backgrounds too are skillfully devised with all manner of unexpected detail A dragon here a crowd reaction there Altogether lovely uestion Last Man seems a seamless effort of a single artist but to know all three of you worked together in some sense blows my mind How similar are your art styles naturally Have you had to abandon common traits of your art to achieve such a unified aesthetic Answer Bastien and Michael have a similar style even if they actually don t have the same drawing techniue at all They went to the same animation school Gobelins and have already made a comic book together in France Hollywood Jan about a kid who s got Stallone Schwarzenegger and Russell Crowe as imaginary friends Balak draws the storyboard so you don t see his art on the page It s uite different from Bastien s and Mic s it looks like your average Evangelion hentai fanart TBHAnd without segue uestion From what I ve read the story of Last Man is is going to play out across twelve comics volumes a videogame and an animated film How necessary will these non comics additions be to enjoying the story and do you believe we will have them available in the US Answer It will be an animated TV show twenty six episodes of twelve minutes actually Each media can be enjoyed for its own sake but you will get a whole picture if you seeread everything The animated series will shed light on some very big mysteries of the comic book Hopefully it will be available in the US we would like it to be that way The video game LASTFIGHT should be available everywhere by the end of the yearOne of the things I loved about Negima was the unveiling of a large and full cast of characters That book had plenty of volumes to move about and explore the numerous personalities that comprise the core of its narrative thrust By the time of the Mahora Martial Arts Tournament a big magical combat tourney occurring about 13 through the series we ve had ten volumes by which to grow attached to all the competitors essential for creating reader interest in the battlesBalak Sanlaville and Viv s accomplish this in a volume or two Readers are easily invested in Adrian s and Aldana s stories and in Elorna s as well We know enough about Gregorio to know exactly how we want to see his fights end Alyssa s fight is a surprise and plays well off a moment from volume 1 And of course there s the mystery behind the champions Cudna and Cristo Canyon All of this works so flawlessly because these are characters we know we ve been insinuated into intimate moments of their lives and persons through subtle expressions and body language It s all so very well done uestion Do you have a favourite character from the series or one who particularly resonates with you Is it a character we ve seen or one to be revealed after volume 2 Elorna is a favourite of mine so far and I hope we ll see from her somehow Answer Ha so you will be happy to know that Elorna will be a very important character in later volumesMic s favorite character is Cristo Canyon because he looks very calm and yet he s very powerful He s a very complex and important character too Bastien s favorite is definitely Adrian Velba The motherson relationship means a lot to him And Balak s favorite is Richard Aldana because he s a perdant magnifiue beautiful loser as we say in FrenchIt s hard for me not to gush over Last Man For whatever reason I am tempted to pretend that I m above passionately boosting for a series All the same though I ve long argued for the essential subjectivity of the critic s role and even than a critic I count myself an evangelist for good comics And Last Man is good comics Actually it s very good comics So maybe now I ll have another book to recommend constantly and incessantly and breathlessly forever right alongside Cross Game the book I m currently most known for hyping rabidlyReview courtesy of Good Ok
