Description

The sixth of a seven-volume library: six tales of folklore set in Medieval Japan. Presented in English for the first time since the 1970s and 1980s. Tales of ronin, demons, a retired samurai, the beautiful fox goddess and an unlikely savior, this collection includes “Tanka,” “Kimura,” “The Return of Ishi,” “Sato,” “Ogari 1650,” and “Momotaro.” Toppi is widely considered one of the world’s greatest visionaries in the art of sequential storytelling, with his evocative, detail-oriented pen-and-ink style.

Toppi breaks the boundaries of what before him was considered or accepted to be “comics,” creating work that is virtually fine art drawings masquerading as graphic stories. And yet his stories are also poignant, powerful, unusual…reading his work is, for me, a special treat each time a new volume in this series appears. -Bud

The copies we received were all damaged in transit and we have been unable to get them replaced. We regret that we can only offer hurt copies. Corners bumped and/or cover edge dented.
