Shigeo Miyao was a Japanese woodblock artist, famous for his caricatures for children and his pioneering comic work. His humorous children's manga 'Kushisuke Manyuki' ('The Adventures of Dango Kushisuke') first appeared in 1924. In 1922, he began serializing the 6-panel 'Manga Taro' in a daily newspaper. It was published in a book the following year; however most copies were destroyed in the 1923 earthquake. Another manga serial by Miyao is 'Karutobi Karusuke' (1927).
