RESOBOX Gallery & Cafe – 41-26 27th Street, Long Island City

Admission: Minimum on order of a drink or food from the menu

The Manga/Comics Reading and Research Network (MaRRN) in New York welcomes everyone including artists, fans, scholars, researchers, educators, editors, publishers, translators, and more to discuss manga from diverse perspectives.

The primary mission of the MaRRN is to develop a network among individuals and groups who engage with manga/comics to deepen the knowledge of the medium, industry, and culture surrounding it. While starting as a reading group meet-up, RESBOX will have special lecture events to which they will invite manga/comics artists, scholars, and professionals. The event is organized by Shige (CJ) Suzuki, Ph.D., assistant professor at Baruch College, CUNY; and George Tsouris an artist and professor at CUNY.

At this first MaRRN meeting, guests will read and discuss Osamu Tezuka’s critically acclaimed Phoenix, Vol. 2: A Tale of the Future.
