Kitaro’s creator Shigeru Mizuki is a pioneer and master of manga who is celebrated in Japan but has been largely unknown in North America until recently. Fortunately, Mizuki’s work has been made available to an English-reading audience by Drawn & Quarterly, who have begun to release handsome and affordable translations of his greatest works […] Although Kitaro was clearly intended as mass entertainment (and remains enormously popular in its home country), these stories are durable, and Mizuki’s cartooning is brilliant in its range and invention. These richly-illustrated picaresque tales are filled with high drama, lots of laughs, terrifying monsters and the occasional side-trip to Hell.
