Red Tights Man by Imiri Sakabashira, 2019 revised edition, expanded and with 8 pages in color / ISBN 9784883794614 / In Japanese, though many pages have no words. The imagery is mysterious and often completely unhinged.

Parts of this were included in the 2010 Drawn & Quarterly English book The Box Man (which they call a "near-wordless psychedelic travelogue") -- though this 2019 Japanese version is 232 pages and the English one is 128 pages.
