Suehiro Maruo - Mr. Arashi's Amazing Freak Show

Mr. Arashi's Amazing Freak Show falls within the grotesque manga genere of modern Japanese comics, and should not be read by those of weak heart, stomach, or wit. The story follows the main character, Midori, on her unfortunate side-show life, filled with laborous days, dangerous nights, and dark twists of reality. Maruo's compelling, complex imagery is unparalelled by satyrical and ironic storytelling mixed with poetic nuances.
