“I’m really honored to be able to attend as special an event as New York Comic Con.
A lot of influences from America—music, movies, culture—went into BECK.
It’s been eleven years since I last visited New York. I’m really looking forward to seeing it again. Thank you!” — Harold Sakuishi
About Harold Sakuishi
Born in Aichi Prefecture, Japan, Harold Sakuishi has built one of the most storied careers in all of manga, starting in 1987, when his Souwaikan (That’s Not Going to Happen) won the Tetsuya Chiba Excellent Newcomers Award. Subsequent works include Gorillaman (winner of the Kodansha Manga Award in 1990), Bakaichi, Stopper Busujima, and RiN, but probably Sakuishi’s name will forever be entwined with his groundbreaking marriage of manga and indie rock—BECK, which later became a global sensation as a hit anime series. His current ongoing serial, Seven Shakespeares, which speculates on the true identity of the Bard of Elizabethan England, is now being published in English, along with BECK, as part of the comiXology Originals line.
