1. Manga Mondays ~ Naoki Urasawa


    Artist and writer Naoki Urasawa is something of a national treasure in Japan. Creator of acclaimed work Pluto, Monster, and 20th Century Boys. The latter winning multiple awards including an Eisner Award in 2011, and spawning a trilogy of live-action films. His illustration style is expressive with detailed and textured backgrounds. His characters are full of expression and personality. If you want to get into Urasawa’s work I highly recommend picking up 20th Century Boys.
