War + YÅkai!
The World of Shigeru Mizuki with Zack Davisson
talk + signing
08.29 (sat) @ 2:00PM
Recently awarded his second Eisner Award, beloved manga artist Shigeru Mizuki has finally gained significant recognition in the U.S. Since 1957, generations in Japan have enjoyed his mastefully told yÅkai tales. From his mega-hit story about a lovable one-eyed monster boy Kitaro to his poignant semi-autobiographical series Showa: A History of Japan, Mizuki's works continue to be appreciated for their unique flavor that is both fanstastic and down-to-earth.
Join us for a unique event on the unusual life and works of Shigeru Mizuki, led by Japanese folklore scholar Zack Davisson. As the hardworking translator behind Showa, Davisson has incredible insight into the man who is responsible for generating worldwide interest in Japanese ghosts and monsters. This is a chance to learn about a living legend - he's 93 and still active!
This event is free and open to the public.
