Moto Hagio, legendary shoujo manga artist, is a founder of the "Year 24 Group," which revolutionized shoujo manga in the 1970s--and its effects on the genre are still clear to this day. She has been writing manga regularly since 1969, and many of her stories have been adapted to film, television, theatre, and even radio dramas. Among many accolades, Hagio has won the Osamu Tezuka Cultural Prize (1997), the Comic-Con Inkpot Award (2010), and the Japan Cartoonist Association's Award (2011). She is also the first female manga creator to be awarded the Japanese Medal of Honor for Culture (2012). Fantagraphics has recently published several of her prominent works for the first time in English, including Heart of Thomas, A Drunken Dream and Other Stories, and the first volume of Otherworld Barbara volume one. The second volume of Otherworld Barbara is due out this summer.
