Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

The beloved mangaka adapts one of his country—and teh world's—great works of supernatural literature Shigeru Mizuki—Japan’s grand master of yokai comics—adapts one of the most important works of supernatural literature into comic book form. The cultural equivalent of Brothers Grimm’s fairy tales, Tono Monogatari is a defining text of Japanese folklore and one of the country’s most important works of literature. This graphic novel was created during the later stage of Mizuki’s career, after he had retired from the daily grind of commercial comics to create personal, lasting works of art. Originally written in 1910 by folklorists and field researchers Kunio Yanagita and Kizen Sasaki, Tono Monogatari celebrates and archives legends from the Tono region. These stories were recorded as Japan’s rapid modernization led to the disappearance of traditional culture. This adaptation mingles the original text with autobiography: Mizuki attempts to retrace Yanagita and Sasaki’s path, but finds his old body is not quite up to the challenge of following in their footsteps. As Mizuki wanders through Tono he retells some of the most famous legends, manifesting a host of monsters, dragons, and foxes. In the finale, Mizuki meets Yanagita himself and the two sit down to discuss their works. Translated with additional essays by Mizuki scholar and English-language translator Zack Davisson, Tono Monogatari displays Mizuki at his finest, exploring the world he most cherished. Tono Monogatari was translated by Zack Davisson, an award-winning translator, writer, and folklorist. He is the author of Yurei: the Japanese Ghost, Yokai Stories, Narrow Road, and Kaibyo: The Supernatural Cats of Japan and translator of Shigeru Mizuki's multiple Eisner Award-winning Showa: a History of Japan and famous folklore comic Kitaro. He also translated globally renowned entertainment properties such as Go Nagai's Devilman and Cutie Honey, Leiji Matsumoto's Space Battleship Yamato and Captain Harlock, and Satoshi Kon's Opus. In addition, he lectured on manga, folklore, and translation at colleges such as Duke University, UCLA, and the University of Washington and contributed to exhibitions at the Henry Art Gallery, The Museum of International Folkart, Wereldmuseum Rotterdan, and the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

Explanation of the Book:

The human race is a vast herdÑone that John Constantine separated himself from a long time ago. The lonely path heÕs taken since then hasnÕt been an easy one, but in the end itÕs probably been for the best. Given his notoriety as EnglandÕs greatest street-level sorcerer, every tie that binds him to his fellow man is just another potential weapon for his infernal enemies to use against him. Self-sufficiency, however, can all too easily shade into complacencyÑa lesson that John forgets when a desperate stranger corners him in a bar and pleads for his help. The simple spell he performs for his petitioner quickly ensnares the famed magician in a much larger web of ancient, elemental magicÑand transfers his new acquaintanceÕs crippling burden of universal empathy squarely onto his shoulders. Now Constantine must wage war against not only the powerful magus responsible for this hellish curse, but also the unfiltered emotions of an entire city. Typical for JohnÕs luck, that city is Glasgow, ScotlandÑa world center for alcoholism, depression and barely concealed rage. Celebrated crime novelist Denise Mina teams with acclaimed artists Leonardo Manco and Cristiano Cucina to feel each otherÕs pain in Hellblazer Vol. 19: The Red Right Hand, collecting MinaÕs complete run on the series from issues #216-228 as well as the never-before-reprinted story ÒWith a Little Help from My FriendsÓ from issue #229 by Hellblazer emeritus author Mike Carey and guest artist John Paul Leon.
