He’s an iconic character in Japan, as popular as Batman is here, and his adventures, which remind me a bit of The Addams Family, have sold in the millions. Drawn & Quarterly continues their reprints of Shigeru Mizuki’s classic manga with a volume of Kitaro manga, and this book is pure delirious joy […] It’s truly an epic tale, told gorgeously by Kitaro’s artwork that moves effortlessly from a deeply detailed style for settings and backgrounds to a very loose but contained style for people to a thoroughly troubling style for its depiction of mystical creepy-crawlies […] I’d never read any Mizuki before this, and have never been much of a fan of manga, but I was captivated by this book in almost every possible way.
