The bloody art of Suehiro Maruo





Maruo's art is a strange mix of nostalgia, humor and cruelty, just between Tod Browning's Freaks and Bellmer's dolls ! Born in 1956, he is considered as a master of macabre and erotic grotesque manga (Bara-iro no Kaibutsu, 1982). Composer John Zorn used Suehiro illustrations for the liner art of his band Naked City's albums. Zorn has contributed the foreword to Suehiro's latest collection of works (published in 2005).

I've long been a fan of Maruo's too. I love his graphic retellings of the Edogawa Rampo tales. Even his black and white mangas are great!
