For more than 60 years, Leiji MATSUMOTO has been casting a spell on manga fans science fiction enthusiasts: the creator of Captain Harlock is the author of a work that has become inevitable all around the world. If he distinguished himself in science fiction with Galaxy Express 999 and obviously Captain Harlock, he also got successful in other genres such as western (Gun Frontier) and other themes such as war (The Cockpit). Never short of creativity, he collaborated with Daft Punk in the early 2000s in Interstella 5555, the movie for the album Discovery, and on the music video for One more Time.
Leiji MATSUMOTO will be joining two other major names of science fiction manga and anime who will be attending Japan Expo: Gô NAGAI, the author of Grendizer, and Yoshiyuki TOMINO, the creator of Mobile Suit Gundam. Japan Expo will be celebrating its 20th Anniversary with three inevitable guests who laid down the foundations of today’s manga and anime, and inspired so many artists who now fill our dreams.
Don’t miss Leiji MATSUMOTO on Thursday and Friday: come meet him at signings and attend an outstanding panel during which the artist will also perform a live drawing!
