Product description

Review

"A powerful, maddening and at times bitterly funny war story--a revealing look at World War II from the opposite side." --Dan Kois, NPR

"Shigeru Mizuki is one of Japan's greatest illustrators, a master of both realism and manga." --The Globe and Mail

About the Author

Born in 1922 in Sakaiminato, Tottori, Shigeru Mizuki is a specialist in stories of yokai and is considered a master of the genre. He is a member of the Japanese Society of Cultural Anthropology, and has traveled to more than sixty countries to engage in fieldwork of the yokai and spirits of different cultures. His work has been published in Japan, South Korea, France, Spain, Taiwan, and Italy, and he was the first manga-ka to win the grand prize at the Angoulême International Comics Festival, Europe's highest prize for comics.
