This SAT* - DEVILS & ROBOTS: A Tribute to GO NAGAI

This Sat, June 1, 2013, Join Q Pop for this very special event and show celebrating one of the most influential and popular "GODS" of manga, GO NAGAI!!
Go Nagai is credited with creating the Super Robot genre and for designing the first mecha robots piloted by a user from within a cockpit with Mazinger Z. He is also credited with introducing sex into japanese comics.
Go Nagai has also been credited with starting the "magical girls" genre which would evolve into Sailor Moon and similar titles.
He is best known in the US for creating Cutie Honey, Devilman, and Mazinger Z in the 1970s. Many of the other robots in the Mattel line of toys, Shogun Warriors,  were his creations.
In Japan he has had many more popular titles and anime/tokusatsu shows based on his creations.
Always controversial, Go Nagai has pushed the envelope for comics in Japan inspiring countless talent afterward.

Over 60 artists will contribute to the show. Some of the animation industry's heaviest hitters as well as illustration and fine arts professionals and indie toy makers.
Artists from Pixar, Disney, Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, and more.....and artists from the US, Japan, Italy, the UK, Canada!!
