His use of detail, of complex backgrounds, of pictures packed with fantasy imagery is fascinating. Includes an interview with Baron and Terada in both Japanese and English.

As a Gekiga illustrator and a painter, readers will enjoy Baron Yoshimoto’s life and work from various aspects. A rare and important interview with Katsuya Terada is included as a special feature. Some nudity.
