SHINTARO KAGO DAILY COMICS UPDATE

An update to the Daily Manga section of Shintago Kago's website came faster than I expected. Here is the new batch of seven, with my quick English translations (and a Umezu allusion)! This week's revolve around the Kannon (sometimes called Kwannon), the popular Japanese incarnation of the thousand-armed bodhisattva of mercy.

SUNDAY - Kannon of Gwashi


MONDAY - Kannon of Wanking


TUESDAY - The foetal movements of Kannon


WEDNESDAY - Kannon's deformed child


THURSDAY - Kannon forced to work at a soapland


FRIDAY - Kannon Voodoo Doll


SATURDAY - Kannon paying off her yazuka debt

mit, i've never read any kago comics, until this time, it was called "suck it." I can safely say i
was easil disturbed to the level
of suehiro mauro, waita uziga...
it could've simply been a lowly shocking guro comic, but the punchline at the end shows that kago knows how to draw out a joke to the level of itchy uncomfortability.
He's a sick fuck, but great.
(of course not to simply relegate mauro to a guro comic maker, heaven forbid, i love him too!)

but holy shit!
