​This is a Comic Art Tokyo special.

'"Though virtually unknown in the United States, Tadao Tsuge is one of the original masters of alternative manga, and one of the world’s great artists of the down-and-out. ​

​ Debuting as a cartoonist in the rental kashi-hon market in 1959, he was a leading contributor to the legendary magazine Garo during its heyday in the late 1960s. He has drawn extensively for magazines like Yagyō and Gentō, often pulling from his experiences growing up in the slums of Tokyo, working for postwar Japan’s ooze-for-booze blood banks, and daydreaming while fishing. Tsuge currently lives in Chiba Prefecture, north of Tokyo, where he splits his time between cooking for his family and drawing even stranger manga."
