New Japanese 'mook'

Picked up a hefty new Japanese 'mook' (magazine book) this week that's just been released. Simply titled "Manic Street Preachers" it takes a look at 30 years of the band up to present day, and includes archive interviews, images and album info.

Some of images are great, ones I've not seen before.

There's also a Richey poetry/lyric sheet in the back I'd not seen before. Wondered if it had been published elsewhere?

It starts with "I believe god is a man..." and has sections headed "Two-Face" and "Clay Face"...

Two-Face starts with "I am a liar. NO. We are the acid scarred victims of history. Of evil and hypocrisy."

Has anyone seen this before?

Hi, think that would be the
Crossbeat special edition, i received the amazon ad/mail last month about it,
bit pricey. amzn.to/2GZXTaD

Thanks, the way you describe it, it sounds worth having a look - having not bought
manics related print in a good while
Seen a tweet of it on #manicstreetpreachers

That's quite funny, he should quote a villian from batman's Arkham Asylum
Two-Face, Clay Face too - DC Comics supervillains - Batman!

Yeah that's the one, the Crossbeat book.

It's really quite good, nicely presented... likewise, I don't really know much of what the words say, but the pictures alone are really good

Thanks very much for posting this. Manics books / magazines are the only thing I'm really trying to collect, so I appreciate knowing about new ones. Some excerpt images were posted on Twitter:

He did it a fair bit. Nicked loads of stuff from 2000AD comics as well as DC.

Haven't logged into FD for ages... you're linking me! I'm akw! All my CrossBeat scans of "new" pics are here.

Anyway, if anyone needs a snippet of the book translated, I can do small sections.

‪These are not poems. They are direct quotes from two Batman comics. The first two from “Arkham Asylum: A Serious House On Serious Earth” by Grant Morrison and the last one is the Mutant Leader’s speech from “The Dark Knight Returns” by Frank Miller.”‬
