Yesterday afternoon I was perusing the TACO che blog (as I do when I'm looking for some inspiration) and came across this beautiful Risograph-printed comics zine, 土星 (Dosei - "Saturn").
This is the 4th issue of Dosei (The HOW-TO issue), and includes a number of exciting cartoonists and graphic designers. I'm not familiar with any of these artists, but have a hit list of folks to Google and track down (and share with the Same Hat Community in the coming weeks).
Check out these beautiful, two-color spreads from the issue; this stuff is extremely inspiring to me (and makes me feel bad about all the work I've done so far):
The previous issue, Dosei #3, was also printed on Risograph and is equally lush. Here are some (smaller) spreads from the TACO che shop:
I'll work on more posts/details about Dosei and other self-published zines from Japan. These are our Risograph/zine peers and I wanna work on connecting the loose circuit of creators in the US and Euope with these folks over in Japan.
UPDATE: Thanks to the internet sleuthing of Niki, we now have a listing of artists published in Dosei and their personal sites!
