Devil Man

Recent commission of Go Nagai's classic manga/anime character from the 70's.

Interestingly enough, Nagai's work has always been an influence, but it wasn't until very recent that I discovered who the creator behind the work was. He's responsible for such classics as Devil Man, Cutey Honey, Kekko Kamen, but probably best known for his work on Mazinger Z and Getter Robo. These last two were part of the giant robot craze which invaded the U.S. in the 70's and 80's, and were better known as members of the Shogun Warriors* toy line.

For me, Nagai is one of the rare artists who can combine adult themes, humor, and cool monsters all in one. If you dig old school anime, I recommend hunting down some of his 70's Japanese t.v. shows on e-bay. Good stuff!

* p.s. ........24" first release Mazinga Shogun Warrior ......BEST TOY EVER!
