Dear Screen-L:

The University of California Press  is pleased to announce the publication of:

KRAZY! : The Delirious World of Anime + Comics + Video Games + Art

Bruce Grenville is Senior Curator at the Vancouver Art Gallery and 
coordinating curator for this exhibit.

Comics! Cartoons! Anime! Manga! Graphic novels! Video games! This 
vibrant and engaging book, catalog to a landmark exhibition, 
celebrates the variety and growing significance of visual pop 
culture. Stunningly illustrated with eye-popping art, KRAZY! 
investigates the uniqueness of these forms while considering the ways 
they interconnect. Curated by many of the artists who first brought 
these forms to the public's attention, this volume features 
commentary and interviews with Maus author Art Spiegelman, SimCity 
creator Will Wright, and Canadian comic book author and illustrator 
Seth, along with Tim Johnson (codirector of Antz and Over the Hedge), 
Kiyoshi Kusumi (a global authority on manga), and media theory critic 
Toshiya Ueno. This pathbreaking volume crosses boundaries between the 
printed arts, films, and video games and analyzes the reciprocal 
influences between fields, highlighting the best of each. The energy 
and intensity of the images leap off every page, and the full 
experience of the exhibit itself comes alive in behind-the-scenes 
commentary by the contributors. _KRAZY! _is a dizzying introduction 
to the art forms that will dominate the new century.
