Rise to fame

Matsumoto first came to the attention of the comic industry through her widely distributed artwork Simpsonzu, a manga stylized parody artwork of The Simpsons cast.[2] After the image was picked up by digg,[3] it became one of the most popular deviations ever submitted to DeviantArt [4] and caught the attention of Bongo Comics as well as editor Dallas Middaugh of Del Rey Manga.[5][6] Middaugh read Matsumoto's long-running webcomic Saturnalia and then invited her to submit a proposal which became the graphic novel Yōkaiden.
