Two Eyes of the Beautiful
I’ve decided to give my comic Two Eyes of the Beautiful a second (and probably final) reprint in a deluxe format. Wrapped in a seamless, 4-color risograph cover, bookended by new spread diptychs, and printed at the original drawn size (and in a few pages’ case, just a little bigger to make them all even). I have a few extra copies left after debuting the initial test run of 60 copies at the Tokyo Art Book Fair.
Keep this book because I will soon reprint its sequel Two Eyes of the Beautiful Part II in the same size and format, with new material and nice color covers. I’ll introduce Part III in 2014. This will terminate as a 5-part series. It’s a good story, based on my reading of Umezu Kazuo’s shojo manga “Blood Baptism” with my own story, characters, and twists.
If you want to order a copy from Japan, you can get it through my online shop. It’s $6. Once I run out of copies, it’ll be totally out of print until I can fund the printing costs for the whole edition. More on that soon. It’ll be cool though.
Can I technically classify this as a product of “Screentone TV Distro?” Not sure, since it’s my own regular work… but, well, here I am in Japan making zines, so it makes sense. Check out the other books at the distro page.
