I just got done reading Pure Trance by Junko Mizuno. It is out of print but the guys at my local comic shop were nice enough to let my buy their personal copy. Yay for supporting local business! I read the lengthy piece in one sitting and I have to say. I really liked it. It is effed up beyond all belief, but it was super cute, clever and moving. There is something nonsensical about the Mizuno mangas I’ve read that I find very charming. If you are into the cute and macabre, I would definitely suggest trying to track down a copy.
Junko Mizuno is a manga artist from Japan, who mixes the macabre and the cute to create her own unique style. She has done Pure Trance, Hansel and Gretel as well as Cinderella (all out of print unfortunately).
Recently Marvel Editor C.B. Cebulski posted two Spiderman images (by Mizuno) on his Website, saying he could only give a sneak preview to what seemed like one of his favorite projects.
Personally I am stoked. I love it when Marvel and DC step out of their comfort zones with their core characters to come up with something truly Inspired (Or maybe just crazy ass crazy). Either way, when this bad boy comes out, it will be mine.
