NAKED BODY GN (C: 0-1-0)
Naked Body was organized by Beijing-based cartoonist and publisher Yan Cong. Responding to a prohibition on printed nudity, Yan Cong put out an open call for five page comics in which all the main characters were nude. The resulting mix of authors included veteran cartoonists such as Zuo Ma, author of several graphic novels, and WangXX, author of the ongoing Seal Life series, but also talented up and coming artists Inkee Wang. Naked Body will be the first major anthology of independent Chinese comics published in the US, in close collaboration with the original editor, Yan Cong, and the cartoonists who took part in the book.
