16th Manga Division Jury Selections
Bokura no Manga (Our Comics)
Bokura no Manga Committee [Japan]
This comic book was organized as a charity project to support restoration efforts following the Great East Japan Earthquake. Immediately after the disaster, a group of manga artists and editors with shared concerns exchanged ideas and decided to assemble a collection of non-serialized stories with the aim of aiding recovery efforts. Ultimately, 27 artists created a total of 28 works without any financial compensation. After the stories were distributed in ebook format for the iOS (Apple’s mobile operating system), they were also published in book form.
