Bat-Manga Kerfuffle

My review of Bat-Manga! looks like the first pebble of complaint about that book's lack of credit to Jiro Kuwata -- the writer and artist of the Japanese comics reprinted there, and so creator of 75% or more of the book.

The actual controversy, though, seems to have been sparked by this post by Laura Hudson and not by me; I wasn't mentioned much in the ensuing pile-on and counter-attack.

If anyone's interested, here are the relevant documents:
Kidd and co-compiler (and '60s Batman memorabilia collector) Saul Ferris also commented on my review, to which I've responded there.
