Question reblogged from sexy superhero comedy (or not) with 26 notes

saw08 asked: Hey Warren, I've read about your struggle getting to do Dirty Pair and was wondering if was there was any story behind how you did Bubblegum Crisis: Grand Mal.

adamwarrencomics:

Not much of a story to tell, really.

Circa ‘92, I was talking to my late bud Toren Smith, founder of the manga translation house (and Dirty Pair licensor) Studio Proteus. He was good friends with Robert Woodhead, whose company, AnimEigo, had translated and released the Bubblegum Crisis and Bubblegum Crash OAVs stateside*; thus, in passing, Toren happened to mention that Proteus could theoretically wrangle the rights to do an original BGC comic. He’d never pursued the opportunity, though, as no creative team for such a project  had sprung to mind.

Somewhat to Toren’s bemusement, I chimed in, “Hey, what the hell… I wouldn’t mind doing a Bubblegum Crisis comic.” As I recall, we’d never once discussed BGC beforehand, so he seemed surprised by my interest.

And that’s how my ‘94 Dark Horse miniseries Bubblegum Crisis: Grand Mal came about. The project ended up being a key point in my development as a comics storyteller, due to a whole bunch of novel (to me, at least) narrative techniques I had to employ in order to establish the complicated BGC universe and set a new story in motion… but that’s a whole ‘nother post.

*Lo and behold, Bubblegum Crisis: Grand Mal will eventually be available once again (in digital form) as a part of the successfully funded Kickstarter that Robert set up for the Bubblegum Crisis Ultimate Edition Blu-Ray set: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/madoverlord/bubblegum-crisis-ultimate-edition-blu-ray-set

Less than 2 days (March 16 is deadline) to pledge for the final DVD boxset of Creamy Mami. It only needs $3,680 to reach it’s $18,000 goal. We’re so close! Keep pledging and reblogging! Come out of hiding Creamy Mami fans, this is the last chance to get various Creamy Mami goodies and win an original sketch by Akemi Takada herself.
You can add the previous 3 boxsets when you pledge for the 4th one. The only way we’ll get the Creamy Mami OVAs and more magical girl shows like Pastel Yumi, Magical Emi, etc. would be if this crowdfunding succeeds.
As of this moment we need either 4 Magical Stars, 15 Novas, 25 Super Pulsars, 37 Pulsars, or 92 Cores. There are also 44 Super Cores left which would add $3,300 to the tally.
We’ve come too far to let this fail!

I was going through my longboxes and I dug up this little gem.
Some of you might be too young to had been around for this, but back in the day, in order to get manga into comic shops, companies like Viz would release titles in a comics sized format in single issues.
Crazy times.

I know localization is a pretty controversial subject, and people like their translations as literal as possible these days, but Battle Angel Alita rolls off the tongue a little easier than Gunnm.

Reminder that you only have 3 days to pledge towards Hurricane Polymar on Anime Sols! Poor Polymar still needs over $16k to get funded. Can Tatsunoko fans pull together and raise the money in time? It seems unlikely at this point, but hey—stranger things have happened! If you’re passionate about the series, be sure to spread the word along!

Ippongi Bang, nerdy farmgirl turned manga-ka 90s celebrity
"In her overseas visits BANG schmoozed, got drunk and kissed American fans; meanwhile, Antarctic Press printed "Ippongi Bang Trading Cards" and foldout posters showing her in various outfits. Before Felicia Day, before Apollo Smile (anyone remember her?), she was the first Geek’s Dream Girl. (For that matter, this was before Geek’s Dream Girl). Rumiko Takahashi may have been more famous, but Ippongi BANG would actually come to your convention and party with you.”
