The panels seem amazing! A shame that I could not make it to Canada to attend the convention.

Anyway, would you also cover American/Japan co-produced shows like the 1978 Hanna-Barbera/Toho Godzilla?

And this is something I am really interested in. Hope you will receive a lot of good question there!

As far as I know, Toho's only connection to that Hanna-Barbera Godzilla cartoon was to license the character. Other than that I don't believe there was any Japanese involvement.

I do want to do a panel at some point about co-productions, there are a lot of shows starting in the 1960s and moving on through the 1990s. King Kong, Marine Boy, Johnny Cypher, some of the Marvel Productions shows, Mighty Orbots, Bionic Six, and a lot of direct to video toy stuff like Blinkins and Poochie.

That is a little tidbit about Gozilla I glad to know. Also, talking about Western comic superhero, would you cover Kia Asamiya and Masakazu Katsura, who are both Batman fans and have written manga influenced by Batman?

the topic of Japanese comics based on Western properties would probably be a great panel topic by itself; Shigeru Mizuki drew Plastic Man manga, Takao Saito did James Bond manga, Jiro Kuwata famously drew Batman, I'm sure there have been dozens if not hundreds of iterations of American characters drawn for the Japanese audience.

We did get those Star Wars manga in the states too, they looked really good from what I flipped through on the manga shelves in the past. I'm not sure if they're still on the shelves today other than at used bookstores.

They are still making Star Wars manga now. There is this webcomic named Star Wars: Lost Stars that is adapted from the novel of the same name.
