Naoki Urasawa writes short kaiju manga

Naoki Urasawa’s manga as of late (20th Century Boys, Monster, Billy Bat, Pluto) has been chocked full of subtle nods to golden-age science fiction, which is why it’s exciting to know that he’s working on a manga story explicitly about kaiju: Kaiju Okoku (Monster Kingdom), a 41-page short running in the August 10th issue of Big Comic. It sounds as if the story revolves around Japan using its giant monsters as a tourist attraction, but we’ll just have to wait and see when the actual story is released (I wouldn’t hold my breath for an official English release, but I could imagine it getting scanlated pretty quickly).
