More Moto Hagio!

The news that Fantagraphics & Matt Thorne are teaming up for a new line of translated manga makes me happy. What makes me giddy is that their first release will be A Drunken Dream and Other Stories, a collection of some of Hagio's most important short stories. I've loved Hagio's work ever since reading A A' and They Were 11 way back in the day (when we bought our translated manga flipped, in floppies, and we liked it!) The fact that Hagio's oevre has been basically unavailable in English for years in nigh criminal, and I'm glad to see that Fantagraphics is taking steps to rectify this.
