TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Wedge Holdings CO., LTD. (JASDAQ:2388) is pleased to announce that we secured an exclusive management contract with Mr. Nambaral Erdenebayar. He is a Mongolian who is the most famous and pioneering comic artist in Mongol.
He was born in 1984, now 32 years old. He started drawing comics in 2004 and made a debut with a work titled “300 Tayichiud.” In 2011, his work titled “Bongo” became a big hit and its characters became Mongol’s national representatives.
He holds a personal belief that he wants to tell the lifestyle and history of Mongolians as a nomad race and also express their pride and points of view to next generations and people all over the world. In Mongol, he is not only famous for being an artist of satirical comics on social and political issues, but also a leader in a field of comic art.
He is currently working on a series of “Bumbardai.” The story is about 5-year-old boy named “Bumbardai” who growing up as a nomad race. The story introduces lives of nomad race through his interactions with many people and issues confronting his growth.
“Bumbardai” was received the highest award at 8th international Manga Award in 2015 hosted by Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan. It was the first time ever to give an award to Mongolian work. Since February of 2017, the series has been broadcasted on TV in Mongol and achieves high popularity.
We have actively interacted and communicated with Mr. Erdenebayar and Nordic Comic group (Mongol NGO) which acts as his agent. We have signed a contract with him since we strongly feel attracted to his talent and genuinely empathize for his philosophy and attitude that he shows on his works.
We will wholeheartedly support and market Mr. Erdenebayar and his works to all over the world. We hope you are looking forward to his future success.
