Join Dallas Middaugh as he talks about the history of manga in the U.S. Starting with the early days of the 1980s, when manga tried to fit the mold of American comics, on up to the breakneck rise of manga in the '00s. From its freefall decline in 2008, to its rapid return to popularity today, Middaugh will bring his unique perspective to over three decades of U.S. manga. A 16-year veteran of manga publishing, he worked at Viz, founded the Del Rey Manga imprint at Random House, cofounded Seven Seas, and helped start the Kodansha Comics line. He currently works at Crunchyroll.
