Yoshiharu Tsuge is one of the most revered, influential artists in manga, but virtually unknown in the west due to so little ever being published in English (only 3 short stories have been translated in the past) . That’s a situation that has thankfully changed this past year, which has also seen the publication of The Man Without Talent (also highly recommended). This is the first in a series of books that will be presenting Tsuge’s work for Garo magazine (probably his most-beloved body of work) in chronological order. Even in this early collection of tales from 1965-66, Tsuge is crafting lyrical, literary short stories that speak to the humanity of their characters and lay the groundwork for the avant-gard masterpieces that were to come.
