Fantasy and realistic beautiful women, alien creatures, and warriors, both men and women, are portrayed full page size.

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.
