Japanese Comics Master: Fujio Akatsuka


Bakabon.jpg

Fujio Akatsuka is one of the most famous manga pioneers in Japan. He's up there with Osamu Tezuka (Astro Boy), Shotaro Ishinomori (Cyborg 009) and Fujiko F. Fujio (Doraemon). His characters are some of the funniest I've seen. I'm hoping to come across some english translations of his work. Apparently there are some english translations of "Bakabon"...but I haven't been able to locate...anyone have any ideas?

This is a series of books featuring Mr. Akatsuka's work. These covers are stunning.

I LOVE this crazy cat. From the title sequence of a show created in the late 60's by Akatsuka called "FURIOUS ATARO ". Viewed here.
