My Brother’s Husband Wins Big at 2018 Eisner Awards

 

Big news for fans of Gengoroh Tagame’s critically acclaimed family drama manga, My Brother’s Husband: the manga has won the award for the “Best U.S. Edition of International Material – Asia” category at the 2018 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards, which are presented every year at San Diego Comic-Con.

 

 

My Brother’s Husband was serialized from 2014 – 2017 in Futabasha’s Monthly Action seinen manga magazine, and an English language version (translated by Anne Ishii) is also available from Pantheon Books, who describe the story as follows:

 

Yaichi is a work-at-home suburban dad in contemporary Tokyo; formerly married to Natsuki, father to their young daughter, Kana. Their lives suddenly change with the arrival at their doorstep of a hulking, affable Canadian named Mike Flanagan, who declares himself the widower of Yaichi’s estranged gay twin, Ryoji. Mike is on a quest to explore Ryoji’s past, and the family reluctantly but dutifully takes him in. What follows is an unprecedented and heartbreaking look at the state of a largely still-closeted Japanese gay culture: how it’s been affected by the West, and how the next generation can change the preconceptions about it and prejudices against it.

 

 

Congratulations to Gengoroh Tagame, Anne Ishii, and everyone involved in publishing the English language version of My Brother’s Husband!
