Madeleine Rosca Interview - Interview With Manga Creator of Hollow Fields Q: How did Hollow Fields get picked up by Seven Seas Manga? Madeleine: In November 2005, I launched Hollow Fields on Wirepop, which is an online webmanga community. One of the other artists at Seven Seas saw Hollow Fields and told their boss about it. He contacted me with an email, which had the header, "How would you like to be published in the U.S?" I thought it was a hoax because it sounded too good to be true, and I asked him for proof of who he was! The boss was Jason DeAngelis, who's in charge of Seven Seas. Hollow Fields was hosted just three days on Wirepop before getting the offer from Seven Seas.True story.
