The Fantagraphics Kickstarter to jump-start their spring catalog has added a new stretch goal: if they reach $250,000 (by Thursday 5 December 2013), they’ll “increase our line of literary and experimental manga translation.”
(The Kickstarter page is maybe a little NSFW.)
They’ve been printing Wandering Son, works by Moto Hagio, and will be bringing out Inio Asano’s Nijigahara Holograph.
Wandering Son and Nijigahara Holograph may be pre-ordered as premiums on this Kick-starter.
