Tråd: Manga Horror mesteren Hideshi Hino
Vi fik en masse Hideshi Hino gyser paperbacks for en del år siden, men så pludselig tørrede udgivelses strømmen ind efter ca. 14 bøger, og det er jo en skam; men her er et lille interview med den farlige manga tegner:

Korean-Japanese journalist and film critic Tomohiro Machiyama caught up with Hideshi Hino in 2004 as the ambitious Hino Horror series shifted into high gear, with nearly a dozen English-language translations of his greatest works released in just one year. The following interview covers Hino's life and work in manga, recent and ancient Japanese history, his family's connections to the Yakuza, and the notoriety surrounding his work on the Japanese horror film, Guinea Pig.

Trouble, as you might suspect, runs through his blood.
