    Thanks for organizing this group and for sending out the first meeting notes. I missed that meeting because I’m shy about Skype. I am nearing completion on a book on Korean War comic books. My PhD is in Communications from the University of Washington, Seattle. My work as a comic book publisher has included republishing Hiroshima survivor Keiji Nakazawa’s manga as American comic books (Gen of Hiroshima [1979-1980], I SAW IT [1982].) I teach at Seattle Central Community College and University of Washington, Bothell.

    Thank you Leonard. Your upcoming book sounds very interesting. In the future there will also be meetings that are centered around presentations. Maybe you would be able to attend those.
