Garo Artists Index

This file supports the Garo magazine index, which lists the stories that appeared in Garo from July, 1966 up to (planned at the moment) July, 1971. The magazine itself started in 1964, and effectively ran into the ground in the early 1990s. It's peak circulation was in the early- to mid-70's, largely due (in my opinion) to Sanpei Shirato's "Kamui-Den" (Legend of Kamui). But that ended with the aforementioned July, 1971, issue. I'm picking this specific timeframe because this is about when used copies of the magazine start dropping below 500 yen each ($5.50 USD). Given the sheer volume of manga involved, it's something of a challenge to go through 1 a week, and with 60 issues in this span, just this one 5-year period is going to take a year to wade through. Anyone that wants to help contribute will be welcomed.

This page will give a little background on the artists appearing, alphabetically, in Garo during this 5-year span. Fairly early on, the editors made an open request for the readers to submit their own stories, where the emphasis was on storytelling rather than artistic skills, in that, as Sanpei had said, it'd always be possible to go back and fix the art later. What this means is that a number of stories came from amateurs that never did anything else commercially after their one or two accepted ideas. For more information on specific stories, go to the main index page, and click on the link for that month to see the related blog review entry.

Abe, Shinichi (安部慎一)

Shinichi Abe (1950-) is the second of Garo's so-called "1-2-3" artists (along with Masuzou Furukawa and Oji Suzuki), because the kanji in their names can be read as the numbers 1, 2 or 3. While Abe has an extensive list of credits in the Japanese wiki, and his autobiographical manga "Miyoko Asagaya Kibun" was released as the movie "Miyoko" in 2009, there is very little information on him in English. In fact, the following information comes only from the Twitch Film review of the movie. Abe lived in the artist district in Tokyo in the 1970's. His debut work for Garo was "The Gentle Person" (May, 1970). He started out as a struggling artist until he decided to feature a model, Miyoko, as his main character. Later, they marry, and the "Miyoko" manga is serialized in Garo. However, Abe had a problem with drugs and alcohol, and things spiraled out of control, as described in the "Miyoko" manga. More recently, Abe was one of the artists to appear in the "Ax Anthology, vol. 1".

Akasegawa, Genpei (赤瀬川原平)

I first encountered Genpei Akasegawa (1937-) when I did the comparison between Garo and COM. At that time, he had appeared in the July, 1971 issue of Garo. According to the English wiki, he is an artist and literary author, working under the names Genpei Akasegawa, Katsuhiko Akasegawa and Katsuhiko Otsuji. Born in Yokohama, he was part of the Neo Dada movement in the 50's and 60's. He coined the term "Tomasons" to refer to ordinary, useless street objects that look like conceptual art, named after a very bad Yomiuri Giants outfielder, Gary Thomasson. Currently, he's a camera collector and avid photographer. He may be best known for the "1000-yen Incident", when he sent out invitations to a solo exhibition in Tokyo in 1963. The invites were on copies of a 1000 yen bill, resulting in his being convicted on counterfeiting charges. He also wrote a comment on Yuu Takita, in the Garo tribute to Yuu, issue #59.

Fujisawa, Mitsuo (藤沢光男)

Mitsuo preferred to create bizarre 4-page gag strips with weird art and weirder characters as part of his "Aozora Tarou's Picture Diary". He was on chapter 6 as of the July, '66, issue, and he'd only appear every few months. Nothing on him on the net.

Furukawa, Masuzou (古川益三)

Masuzou Furukawa (1950-) is noteable, if for no other reason, for having founded the Mandarake used bookstore chain, with the first shop opening on the second floor of the Broadway department store in Nakano (west of Shinjuku a few miles) in 1980. "Field Bath" was his debut work, and shortly afterward he joined Mizuki Pro in July, 1970, as an assistant artist. He worked various part-time jobs to supplement his income as an artist from roughly 1971 to 1980, which included a stint at another bookstore, which prompted him to open Mandarake. Various sources, including Anime News Network, identify Furukawa as one of Garo's "1-2-3" artists of the '70s and '80s, along with Oji Suzuki and Shin'ichi Abe (supposedly the second syllable of each artist's name sounds like "one", "two" and "three" when taken in order). We'll see Furukawa show up again in July, 1971, with "Violet Legend".

Hanawa, Kazuichi (花輪和一)

Hanawa has got a really long credit list on the Japanese wiki, but probably the one title he'll most be known for in the U.S. is "Doing Time". He had been an avid collector of old rifles, and he got caught up by Japan's no firearms law. He was convicted and sentenced in 1994 to 3 years in prison. When he got out, he created "Doing Time" to chronicle his experiences, and it ran in Garo's rival magazine, AX. It was carried in the U.S. by Fanfare in 2004.

Hayashi, Seiichi (林静一)

Seiichi (1945-) is most well-known in the U.S. for his "Red-Colored Elegy", published by Drawn and Quarterly, although the bio on him at D&Q is woefully inadequate and there's no English wiki entry yet. The Japanese wiki is much more complete. A review at Anthem Magazine gives a bit more background, describing him as "a manga artist, film (and commercial) director, art director, illustrator, and children's book author". His anime credits include "Shadow" (かげ, 1968), "The Oct. 13 Murder" (10月13日の殺人, 1970) and "Demon Love Song" (鬼恋歌, 1971). The Japanese wiki indicates that he'd entered Toei Animation Studios as an animator in 1962. While his early works already had a lot of absurdist symbolism, with the "Rose" series he entered a seriously surreal phase.

Hino, Hideshi (日野日出志)

I've never heard of Hideshi (1946-) before, but he's an established horror artist, according to the English wiki entry. The Japanese wiki has a much more complete listing of his works, but it's missing the name of his 1967 debut work for Tezuka's COM magazine (the rival of Garo). There's also no mention of Mud Dolls in either wiki. According to the wiki entries: Born in China, his family escaped back to Japan when the post-war anti-Japan actions erupted. His grandfather was a yakuza, and his father was an itinerant pig farmer with a spider tattoo on his back. His early influences included Shigeru Sugiura and Yoshiharu Tsuge. His works have also appeared in shojo magazines, and a number of his manga have been turned into live-action films.

There's very little on Miki Ibara in either Japanese or English. She is an established shojo horror artist, and thirteens.net lists quite a few of her titles (unfortunately, I can't get the URL to print out here). There does seem to be a decent fan page for her, with some bio information, but no wiki pages.

Ikegami, Ryouichi (池上遼一)

Ryouichi, may be best known for his hyper-realistic action series, such as "Crying Freeman" and "Mai, the Psychic Girl". But, when he was first starting out, he had a much sloppier, cartoony style similar to early Tezuka and Yoshiharu Tsuge, which then morphed into the hyper-realistic designs of the horror manga "Summer". Some of his first stories appeared in Garo.

Ikeuchi,Makoto (池内誠)

Makoto Ikeuchi is a pen name for Seiichi Ikeuchi, who also wrote under different hiragana and kanji spellings of his own name. According to the Akame fan page (Aka Me Pro, or Red Eye Productions was Sampei Shirato's studio), Ikeuchi was born in 1947, and entered Aka Me Pro around 1966 as an assistant, where he worked on "Watari" and "Kamui Gaiden". "Revolt" was his manga debut, and he went on to create various golf manga, including "The Swing". There's an interview with him at Comipress.

Katsumata, Susumu (勝又進)

Katsumata may be better known in the U.S. as the creator of "Red Snow", published in 2009 by Drawn and Quarterly. However, what most book reviewers seem to miss is that "Red Snow" hadn't run in Garo. It originally appeared in a different magazine. In any event, starting with the June, 1966, issue, he began appearing regularly in Garo with a series of short panel (yonkoma) gag strips, usually satirical or political in nature. Sometimes, there'd only be one page of gags, other times it could be up to 12 pages.

He graduated from the Tokyo University of Education with a degree in physics, and studied nuclear physics as postgraduate work. He died at age 63 from melanoma.

Komori, Makoto (コモリ マコト)

The problem with trying to track down information on these artists is that occasionally their names turn out to be fairly common, (and of course they could have been using a pen name) and if there's no solid wiki page on them you're just piecing information together that may not be for the person you want. There's no wiki entry on Makoto Komori (コモリ マコト) in English or Japanese, but he does come up fairly often as a children's book author, specifically for the "Bal, the Car" series, and some scary books aimed at misbehaving kids. The earliest ones date back to 1978. There's also a bassist for the punk band Link of the same name, and a power train design engineer for Nissan. But I'm thinking that these are three separate, unrelated people and the one we want is the children's book author.

Kougo, Tsuguo (向後つぐお)

Tsuguo Kougo was a prolific artist having worked extensively with Comic Goraku, drawing adult-themed manga based on shogi and gambling in general. There's very little written up on him though, in either English or Japanese.

Koyama, Haruo & Ri, Haruko (小山 春夫 & 李 春子)

Oyuki was written by Haruko Ri, and illustrated by Haruo Koyama. Haruko Ri apparently isn't a Japanese name, but I'm not finding a lot in English on her. Her last name could also be read as "Sumomo", which does come up in the credits for "Gen and Tsugumi", a manga also illustrated by Haruo Koyama that ran in Shonen Sunday in 1969. Her name also shows up for one illustrated picture book on the eHon site. So, she seems to have been somewhat active as a writer. Haruo Koyama (1934-), on the other hand, had worked as an assistant at Aka Me Pro (Shirato's studio) before going off on his own. There's a little bit of info on him on the net in Japanese, but no wiki page. He is listed as having drawn a manga in 1963 based on the "Kouga Ninja Scrolls" novel by Futaro Yamada (and later readapted by "Basilisk" artist Masaki Segawa). His time at Aka Me Pro shows vividly in Oyuki, given how much the artwork here resembles that from "Kamui-Den".

Kusunoki, Shouhei (楠勝平)

Shouhei (1944-1974) was a regular contributor to Garo. He had a very clean, recognizable style, and he preferred to set his serio-comic dramas in the Edo period of the 1600's to the 1800's. He was principally a gekiga artist. According to one website, he debuted in 1960 with "Certain Kill Secrets" (必殺奥義) in "Master Fencer Picture Book" (剣豪画集). His "Senmaru" was serialized in Garo from Oct. 1964 to June, 1965. He then had a series of short manga appearing in both Garo and COM. As of yet, there's no entry for him in either the Japanese or English wiki. He seems to be a perfect match for Drawn and Quarterly, but his work apparently hasn't been translated into English commercially yet. He is credited as having worked for Sampei Shirato as an assistant.

Morimoto, Kiyohiko (森本清彦)

There's not a lot of information on Kiyohiko Morimoto in Japanese or English. He is listed in Nihon Mangaka, which has a selection of his works, and there are a few pages with some sample artwork. He does have a blog, but it's not that interesting. At present, he seems to be doing primarily editorial-style caracature work.

He also worked for Takao Saito (Golgo 13) for a while. He's got about 20 titles listed in the English wiki. With "Life" in volume 34, he started running what he called the "Shinji Gekiga Collection".

Naka, Yoshiko (仲佳子)

No hits on Yoshiko Naka, in English or Japanese. "Yoshiko" is probably a female name, so I'll assume it's a "her" until corrected. Yoshiko first appeared in issue Garo issue 52, which is one that I haven't been able to find yet. She goes on to appear sporadically for the next year or so. Her initial style is a bit amateurish, with characters all having oversized heads. She settles down over time, with the designs looking a little more realistic, but the stories switching from light gags to surreal impressionism.

One of his assistants, Takumi Nagayasu, later went on to team up with Katsuhiro Otomo on the "Mother Sarah" series. One of his few manga to be mentioned in English anywhere is "1970 Tagiri", which had run in Shonen Jump in 1970. He started out appearing in anthologies and rental manga, doing action and historical dramas. It's not surprising that there's a very strong hint of "Golgo 13" in his character designs - he'd been a member of Takao Saito's manga group and worked as an assistant for him for a while.

Naono, Yoshiko (直野祥子)

It looks like Yoshiko went on to draw some picture books, but there's no real profile on her in either English or Japanese. One of her books is listed on the Tsutaya store auction site, and apparently she made an appearance as late as April or May, 2006 on Musashino FM.

Ogawa, Akira (おがわあきら)

In through the first year of my timespan (1966-1967), Akira appeared every few issues with his "Poem of Heaven and Weeds" serial. It was fairly preachy and definitely my least favorite manga in Garo. Actually, it only ran 9 chapters, but the other artists seemed to enjoy occasionally putting caricatures of Akira in their own stories, making him something of a fixture during this period. There's very little on him personally on the net, and his name is pretty common in Japanese, making a search on him difficult. Note that in 1965 he did run a limited series in Garo titled "Tatakai Aru Kagiri Ni" (戦いある限りに) ("To the Limits of Battle").

Ohtani, Hiroyuki (陰溝蝿児)

I have yet to get a pronunciation for "陰溝蝿児". According to the Garo Encyclopedia, his real name is 大谷弘行 (Hiroyuki Ohtani). And Ohtani has appeared here before with "Falling Star" (issue #71) and "Winter Wind" (#74). I first encountered "陰溝蝿児" when I did the initial review of Garo, with the July, 1971, issue. He was in the middle of a different murder mystery at that time, indicating that the current series storyline only lasts a few chapters.

Maki Sasaki (佐々木まき) (born in 1946) (real name Toshihiko Hasegawa (長谷川俊彦)) has a large number of titles to his credit, and a slight write-up on the Japanese wiki. The ehon page has a small bio, saying that he was born and raised in Kobe. His early works appeared in Garo and the Asahi Journal. He then pioneered a series of nonsense picture books in 1973 and 1979. He also wrote the "Nemui nemui Nezumi" (The sleepy sleepy mouse) series among others. He is mentioned on Same Hat, and 1 or 2 of his short manga have been scanned by Pink Tentacle.

Sasaki, Mamoru & Okamoto, Satsuko (佐々木 守 & 岡本 颯子)

These two worked as a pair on an illustrated history retrospective, with Mamoru writing and Satsuko doing the art. They were on chapter 10 by the July, '66, issue, but didn't appear in every issue all the time. Generally, the chapters were 6 pages each, but could occasionally run 5 or 7 pages.

Mamoru Sasaki was a prolific TV and film screenwriter, who died in 2006. His credits include a few "Ultraman" episodes. Satsuko is an established illustrator, with a long credit list on the Japanese wiki. The main hits in English are for some children's book work that she did. She was also apparently Sampei Shirato's younger sister, and did the illustrations on a story Ri Haruko (Sampei's wife) submitted to Garo back in 1965.

According to the Japanese wiki, Ouji Suzuki (1949-) started drawing manga while in school and finally was accepted in Garo with his debut work, "Helping Shou". After this, he was brought on as one of Shigeru Mizuki's assistants. He's credited with almost 20 titles, including "Tokyo Goodbye", "Autobike Girl", "Sea Touch", "Story of a Match" and "Twinkling Book". There's almost nothing on him in English, outside of a couple examples of his artwork. Most of his stuff (apparently including music CD covers) can still be found on www.amazon.co.jp.

Takahashi, Takao (高橋高雄)

According to the Japanese wiki, Takao Takahashi is the birth name of the manga artist who later went by the name "矢口 高雄" - Takao Yaguchi. Yaguchi (1939-) was an essayist as well as an artist, and his most famous work was "Sampei the fisherman". "Lingering Song" is very reminiscent of Sampei Shirato's work, especially in the designs of the young girl. The older men look like they may have come from Golgo 13. Just simply looking at the cover art for "Sampei the Fisherman", there's nothing of that playfulness in "Sampei" in "Lingering Song". The German Aniki Info page indicates that "Lingering Song" was Yaguchi's debut work. Interestingly, while Yaguchi and "Sampei the fisherman" are very popular in Japan, very little about them has been written up in English. As of right now, there's no English wiki page on him.

Takita, Yuu (滝田ゆう)

Yuu (1932-1990) actually made a cameo appearance in Kunio Nagatani's "Aho-shiki", a parody of Yoshiharu Tsuge's "Neji-shiki". He's identified on the Japanese wiki as an artist and essayist, but there's not a lot of credits for manga under his own name. He debuted in 1952 with "Quiz Manga". He was the featured subject for an analysis by Junzou Ishiko in Garo issue #44, and he was considered an influential gekiga artist by the curators of the "300 Years of Manga" exhibit that had been held at the Kawasaki Museum at the end of the 1990's. In the book "Tokiwa Sou Playback", one of the Tokiwa Manor artists, Naoya Moriyasu, identifies Yuu as having been an assistant of Suiho Tagawa (creator of "Norakuro", who'd also trained Machiko Hasegawa, creator of "Sazae-san".)

Takuo, Yasuda (やすだ たくお)

IMDB lists writer, director and producer credits for Takuo Yasuda (やすだ たくお) on the films "Artful Dodgers", "Does Your Soul Have a Cold?", and "Eric Clapton: Sessions for Robert J". There's almost nothing in the Japanese pages for やすだ たくお, although there are a few hits on 保田卓夫, which is pronounced the same. No Japanese wiki page though. So it's possible that this Garo manga artist and the director/writer on "Artful Dodgers" aren't the same person, or that やすだ たくお was his pen name. It's also possible that they are the same person, being stalked by a priest with a shamisen.

Yoshihiro Tatsumi (1935-) is credited with being the person that coined the word "gekiga" (dramatic pictures) and is in at least one way responsible for the creation of Garo, in as much that this magazine was created to give an outlet to gekiga manga. He's been translated by Drawn&Quarterly, and his most well-known story in the west may be his A Drifting Life.

Tsuge, Tadao (つげ忠男)

I have to be honest, when I saw "Vincent Van Gogh on the Hill", I thought that Yoshiharu Tsuge had drawn it, but that the art was a little off. It wasn't until I was looking at a Garo index page in Japanese for issue #55 that I finally noticed that the author name didn't match up. Now I have to go back through all of the previous Garo issues to see where else I got the credits wrong. Tadao Tsuge (1941-) is Yoshiharu's younger brother (one of two; they also have two younger half-sisters from when their mother remarried according to the Comics Journal article). Tadao is also an established artist, but not as well-known. There's one fan page showing some of his signed covers. A Japanese listing of his works can be found here.

Tsuge, Yoshiharu (つげ義春)

Yoshiharu was one of the later fixtures of Garo. He started out doing detective and action stories in the 1950's that were obviously influenced by early Tezuka manga. Later, he got into a relationship and when it broke up, he stopped drawing manga and tried killing himself. When the editors at Garo heard about this, they ran a sidebar asking Tsuge to contact them. He did, and began working as Shigeru Mizuki's assistant. He would run one of his own short stories in Garo every few months. The most famous of which, "Neji-shiki" (Screw-style) was adapted into a live action film known in the U.S. as "Screwed". His stories tend to plumb the depths of human nature as fits the original definition of "gekiga" - "dramatic pictures". He did eventually drop out of manga and hasn't drawn since 1986.

Tsurita, Kuniko (つりた くにこ)

Kuniko (1948-1985) started right after the editors asked for reader submissions. She went on to establish herself as a manga artist in her own right. She tended to alternate between silly gags with cameo appearances by Shigeru Mizuki and Akira Ogawa, but then she'd follow that with more serious stories like "Woman".

Apparently due to the popularity of the 2010 NHK drama series "Gegege no Nyobo" ("Wife of Gegege"), which is based on a book written by Shigeru Mizuki's wife, Kuniko Tsurita has become more visible as well (not sure of the connection here, though). In any event, a more complete write-up on Kuniko recently appeared on a Japanese blog in July, 2010. She debuted in the Sept., 1965, issue of Garo, and continued writing primarily for Garo up until Nov., 1980. There's some indication that she worked briefly in Mizuki Productions doing work on background art. She's connected to radical shojo artist Fumiko Okada (1945-2005) in some way, but the details on this aren't clear to me.

One other fan page has a profile on her, but it is in Japanese only.

Ueno, Koshi (上野昂志)

Koshi is the oddball of the bunch. Each issue, he'd run a 2-page essay, usually political commentary on different topics of the day, such as government responsibility, or the U.S. involvement in Vietnam. Koshi had worked as a journalist and/or critic, and has a series of blog entries for the Asahi Shimbun. As of 2008, he was the president of the Japan Journalist College.

Yamada, Murasaki (やまだ紫)

Murasaki Yamada (real name Mitsuko Shiratori, 1948-2009) was a feminist essayist, poet and manga artist. According to the wiki page, she contributed fairly heavily to Garo, but "Ah, Seken-sama" marks her first appearance here in Feb., 1971. Her real debut was in COM, in 1969. Her assistants included manga artists Hinako Sugiura and Yoko Kondo. She is regarded by Fred Schodt as a standout for her feminist message in a sea of shojo.

Yodogawa, Sanpo (淀川さんぽ)

"Yodogawa Sampo" is a parody of "Edogawa Rampo", which in turn was adopted by a mystery writer using the Japanized version of "Edgar Allan Poe". Little is written on Sampo, but he goes on to be a regular contributor for Garo for at least the next 2 years. Actually, there are a couple Japanese fan pages dedicated to him, but it's hard to get useful information from them. "Shonen" (Boy) was his debut work.
