Juxtaposing the hyper-cute with the grotesque, in the dark, fantasy world of Mizuno, big-eyed, semi-naked Lolitas with ribbons and rattlesnakes in their hair, play with gient syringes and razor blades (don't try this at home kids!). And, beneath the baby pink, puffy-textured cover of this book, you'll find an engagingly lurid collection of comely-yet-vaguely sinister, jailbait-types who look, quite frankly, like a whole buncha female trouble.
The hell babies of the title, were all penned and coloured by Junko between 1998 and 1999, but as an unannounced bonus, the book also includes the fabulously-titled 'Vulgarity Babies' section, which features later creations from 2000. Less textured than the preceding work, they represent a further refinement of the artist's style and include some of the most charming images in the collection.
although the illustrations themselves are very different
the cover is nice and cushioned, I don't know if it's a widespread thing
but my book smells like a gym mat
I like the cuteness of the characters and I like how it's mixed with ''guro'' elements
some of the illustrations have exposistion to them, which is fun reading
all in all a very good artbook if you are looking for kawaii-guro hallucination fuel lol
