I am amazed by how prolific this guy was -- so many monsters and all of them good. These illustrations -- many of them in color -- appeared in magazines over his career. There are a ton (it's 540 pages!) that don't appear in the other two of his books I'm selling.

“Shigeru Mizuki resurrected Japan’s folk creatures as pop culture for the masses.”―Matt Alt, The New Yorker

Born March 8, 1922 in Sakaiminato, Tottori, Japan, 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 around the world to engage in fieldwork on the yokai and spirits of different cultures. He has been published in Japan, South Korea, France, Spain, Taiwan, and Italy. His award-winning works include Kitaro, Nonnonba, and Onward Towards Our Noble Deaths. Mizuki's four-part autobiography and historical portrait Showa: A History of Japan won an Eisner Award in 2015.
