Chiba interview

I've written about the Big Issue before. It's a small brochure-like magazine that is provided to the homeless, who then sell them at street corners for 300 yen ($3.30 USD) to receive a small income. Most of the issues have feature stories on western actors or new hit movies, but occasionally there will be interviews with manga artists or their relatives. The first issue I'd picked up was #128, last November, with interviews with the daughters of Fujio Akatsuka and Osamu Tezuka.

This time we have an interview with Tetsuya Chiba, creator of the boxing manga "Ashita no Joe" (Tomorrow's Joe). I'm not going to try to summarize this, but you're welcome to if you want.
