Published in 1934 and lost in the subsequent turmoil of World War II, Tank Tankuro was one of the first “superheroes” to appear in manga. Gajo Sakamoto’s creation influenced many manga artists and is the foundation from which many masterpieces of manga art would later spring. Famous for its adventure stories full of surrealism and eccentricity, this hidden gem is revived in full color in a deluxe hard cover + book case format, beautifully designed by Chris Ware!
