EYE OF ATROCITY – Superviolent Ukiyo-E art book now in stock


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWould you believe that these insanely gruesome illustrations of Samurai were originally created in 1870? If you want a whole book that is this intense… or moreso… then by all means come pick up THE EYE OF ATROCITY: SUPERVIOLENT ART BY YOSHITOSHI, the Ukiyo-E Master Series Volume Two. It’s pretty incredible stuff, must be seen to be believed. Located on the second floor.

New From Shintaro Kago – Gruesomelarious Mini-Comics



OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOne of our favourite Japanese creators is Shintaro Kago. He’s almost completely unpublished in North America (except for, oddly, VICE Magazine) and he’s an amazing formalist, experimental author AND a purveyor of hiariously satiric filth. We’ve carried some of his self-published books in the past, and on our last trip to Japan we picked up the two newest! “Zombie Play” (written ‘Return of the Living Dead’ on the cover) is a collection of hilarious, billingual Japanese/English zombie gags that are only for the most hardcore fans. We’ve also got his newest, ‘Patent Play’, which is a Japanese-language collection of ‘weird’ inventions turned inside out, often literally. Even in Japanese the illustrations are very… evocative.

Both of these fine books are available on the main floor for the bargain price of $7.

If you want to click “continue reading” down there you can see a couple of samples of some interior pages…!
