EVOLUTION OF MECHA ANIME PRINT BY WREN MCDONALD
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.
