Top Customer Reviews

the sole reason for me getting this book was that im a big fan of the japanese manga artist Junko Mizuno and her uniquely twisted sytle of art. In this book you are offered a great variety of work by 'underground' manga artists, including Junko Mizuno's 'the life of momongo' as well as pieces which could be seen as erotic, humourous, weird, obscene and just plainly stunning by other manga artists in the collection such as the very diverse Usamaru Furuya, who offers a style of comic art that is very different to the ususal manga expectations of cutesy japanese girls with big eyes. i would defiently recommend this book to anyone whether you are a obsessional manga fanatic or anyone with an interest in comic art that extends beyond the norm, as it hosts alot of different styles of manga by different artists that you perhaps wouldnt usually find all together in the convenience of a one nice handy book. it does contain some manga of a more adult content and nature compared to the fuzzy cuteness of say a pikachu, so could possible offend some people, but overall its a great book to have in any collection, and if like me you really like the retro cheekyness of Mizuno i would defiently recommend buying it.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting look at non-main stream manga 11 April 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
A collection of tales ranging from the almost dream-like Swing Shell (a story of a young girl coping with incest) to the bizarre Puntures (a strange look into the copings of modern society). Not every story in this collection, will appeal to everyone and it's definitely not for the kiddies. They will at least challenge any preconcieve notion as to what manga is about and change our views about another culture and perhaps ourselves. I highly recommend this book if only for the story Swing Shell due to its artwork and the way it deals with a very serious topic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Comics Japan ! ! ! No giant robots 23 Dec. 2001
By H_E_H - Published on Amazon.com
This is yet another wonderful collection of strange Japanese Comics. In the same vein as anthologies SAKE JOCK and COMICS UNDERGROUND JAPAN, SECRET COMICS JAPAN is a hearty helping of strange, weird, beautiful and questionable comics.
If you're tired of the pretentious AMerican underground comis that Fantagraphics is publishing, then check out this collection of Japanese gems and take in a refreshing breath of creative air. - JOHN
5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting collection of manga for a mature audience. 15 Sept. 2015
By Marlon P. Deason - Published on Amazon.com
An interesting collection of manga for a mature audience. Many of these creators appear here for the first or only time in English. There are several very graphic stories in this collection so it's not for the easily offended.
