WEEKEND READING: DESERT EYEBALL BY MAKI SASAKI

The end of the work week is so close I can almost taste it! For your weekend reading pleasure, the guys at Pink Tentacle have posted scans of an incredible indie manga gem they scanned from the '70s. From their post (which features large scans):
"Desert Eyeball" (Sabaku no Medama - 砂漠の眼玉), a deliciously nonsensical one-shot manga by Maki Sasaki, appeared in the August 1970 issue of Garo magazine.







Pink Tentacle previously posted another short by Maki Sasaki, "A Dream To Have In Heaven" (Tengoku De Miru Yume – 天国でみる夢) from the November 1967 issue of Garo.

I'm posting some capsule reviews this afternoon of the excellent slew of new comics that came out this week, so please check that out in a few hours!

Excellent post! I picked up the most recent Canicola #8 which has a couple of Hanakuma stories translated in it. Excellent stuff.

Huhuh good thing! There's an article about Maki in the french japanese studies magazine Ebisu (can't remember the issue number). I'll also mention for those interested I put two new french scanlations of Tsuge on my Bakeneko bog. One Anzai to come soon.
Cheers.
