Highly Recommended. By Posuka Demizu. We really, really like this. Stunning fantasy/sci-fi artwork, often starring a lovely young manga-style girl. Posuka Demizu is a rising star whose new title, The Promised Neverland, created with co-author Kaiu Shirai, is currently running in the popular manga magazine Weekly Shonen Jump. This first collection of Posuka’s work features outstanding art from his career AND new illustrations created especially for this edition. Vibrant characters and brilliant compositions rendered in his characteristically precise style.

We really, really like this. Stunning fantasy/sci-fi artwork, often starring a lovely young manga-style girl. Posuka Demizu is a rising star whose new title, The Promised Neverland, created with co-author Kaiu Shirai, is currently running in the popular manga magazine Weekly Shonen Jump. This first collection of Posuka’s work features outstanding art from his career AND new illustrations created especially for this edition. Vibrant characters and brilliant compositions rendered in his characteristically precise style.

I have to admit I'm not as hip to modern manga and anime artists as I should be, so I am so glad that we stumbled onto this. This transcends any mere categorization as "manga." This is superlative art, pure and simple, and looks like the work of an accomplished, veteran animator. Colors are engaging and a delight. Details draw you in and offer so much to examine. Creatures and heroes and heroines offer us a taste that you will want to know more about.

This is taken from the website Manga Mondays, which offers more about Demizu: [here is a link to this site: http://illustratorslounge.com/manga/manga-mondays-posuka-demizu ]

"Demizu was born and lives in Tokyo, Japan. He emerged on the manga scene in 2008 with a mini-series for monthly manga magazine Korokoro. He has worked on a wide range of projects with children’s magazine and video game companies. Notably, he has worked with animation studio JCStaff on the series Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo (The Pet Girl of Sakurasou) and illustrated a comic for the popular card battle Orca Battle."

"Beginning in 2016, Demizu collaborated with author Kaiu Shirai on Yakusoku no Neverland (The Promised Neverland). The series started in issue 35 of Weekly Shōnen Jump (Shueisha). It follows Emma and her friends who try to escape the orphanage they grew up in after they find out the unsettling truth behind it. Originally, Shirai planned to write and draw, but his editor felt like Shirai’s style ‘didn’t do the script justice’ and would be too hard for Shirai to keep up the quality of both. And so Demizu joined the project. Shirai had seen Demizu’s art before and loved it, but before starting the series they created a one-shot called Popy's Wish. The outcome was better than Shirai imagined. Neverland has recently concluded three volumes with the fourth on its way."

"Demizu’s characters are undeniably cute but are often tasked with navigating nightmarish landscapes. His backgrounds are complex, filled with details, but his pencils retain a loose quality to them. He combines the details of a drawing using colour; limiting his pallet to only cool or warm tones. He also uses contrast to direct the viewer’s attention, with the most vibrant colour being the central focus."
