INTERVIEW: "Batgirl and the Birds of Prey" Hunt Rebirth's Oracle
Junko Mizuno is a manga artist whose art is pretty far off the mainstream, yet she shows up in a lot of interesting places—she even drew a Spider-Man story for Marvel’s Strange Tales series, and her Cinderalla (yes, that spelling is correct) was one of Martha Cornog’s picks for the best manga you’re not reading. Mizuno’s version of the Cinderella story is decidedly adult and about as far from Disney as you can get—except that it’s awfully cute (in a subversive sort of way).
Now, lucky West Coast manga fans can see all of Mizuno’s original art for Cinderalla in a special exhibit opening Saturday, and running through August 29, at the Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, CA. (Warning: There’s a small image on that page that’s NSFW.) It looks like all the art is for sale, and there are limited-edition prints available as well.
