Kitaro’s Strange Adventures Continue For The One-Eyed Yokai Boy At D&Q

by Hannah Means Shannon

In time for Halloween, actually, Kitaro takes on even stranger adventures from Drawn & Quarterly. Always a series for the bizarre and whimsical, it features a one-eyed yokai boy who encounters “unpredictable and absurd” situations.

Each of these volumes, of which Kitaro’s Strange Adventures is the latest installment, features a “History of Kitaro” by series translator Zack Davisson, and this provides a window into the life of the series’ creator Shigeru Mizuki.

You can pick up this new volume in comic shops this week and online from Drawn & Quarterly.

Why not take a journey into the unknown with Kitaro?
