Brazil Gets a Michael Jackson Manga

Oh, my. Over at the Bleeding Cool blog, Rich Johnston-- not the same Rich Johnston who used to work for Yen Press, at least as far as I can tell–reports on a new manga-style comic coming out in Brazil by artists Fabio Shin and Rafael Kirschner, writen by Ledo Viera, which will tell the story of Michael Jackson.

The book was supposedly planned prior to the music legen'ds death and is planned for at least 180 pages, but is being altered “to reflect recent events.”

Okay, let's see: insert joke about lolicon, shota, Christopher Handley, Thai prisoners doing the “Thriller” dance, and Rapelay here. Then insert the requisite complaint about it being “too soon.”

Now that we've got that out of the way: would you read a Michael Jackson manga?

Actually, I'd be interested in reading it and doing a compare/contrast with Del Rey's Me and the Devil Blues. Don't look at me like that, I'm serious-- they're both about music legends who were followed by less-than-savory rumors.

Planned before his death? if it wasn't for the 180 pages claim, I'd call bullshit.

You'd have trouble paying me to read it.  

That they drew in that horrible little dent in his chin cracks me up.  

What was it Deb said, he was a cosplayer into shota yaoi?  I wonder if we will see MJ custumes down at SDCC?  They are auctioning off his white glove from that one concert tour there, or so I read in one of the many SDCC news articles I've read recently.

That's one of his most famous poses, if not the most. 
 
I so want to read this. Any news on whether it has an English translation by now?
