Celebrating Diversity: Saturday AM Interviews with SLJ

We recently had the honor of sharing our story and vision with Renee Scott of SLJ School Library Journal. Frederick L. Jones, the founder of Saturday AM, had the opportunity to discuss the importance of representation in manga and our commitment to diverse storytelling.

Jones reflected on what inspired Saturday AM’s inception, saying,

“I’ve always wanted to participate in this beautiful art form, but as I got older—I wanted to see more black and brown characters.”

This desire for inclusivity and diversity has been at the heart of everything we do at Saturday AM.

One of the questions asked during the interview was about what sets Saturday AM apart from other manga publishers. Jones emphasized our commitment to diverse creators and content. He highlighted our exclusive manga series and the groundbreaking representation we bring to the industry.

We’ve been thrilled to see the positive responses from our readers, particularly to series like CLOCK STRIKER, which features a black female lead. Jones shared,

“The love we got… was simply overwhelming and emotionally gratifying!”

It’s moments like these that remind us why we do what we do.
