More About the Author
born in Tokyo, May 27, 1973
Junko Mizuno is a self-taught artist who is recognized for her unique style of powerful and erotic female imagery. Growing up in Tokyo, Junko's work is based on '70s Japanese cute culture but her art refuses to be categorized as it keeps growing and she keeps getting inspired by anything that surrounds her. Her main sources of inspiration include fetish art, folk art, religious art, pin-up art, advertising art, greeting cards, toys, comics, food, music, movies etc.
In 1996, she self-produced a photocopy booklet called "MINA animal DX" which brought her to the attention of the publishing industry in Japan.
Soon after, she debuted as a professional comic artist and illustrator.
Currently residing in San Francisco, she is constantly working on new comics, paintings, illustrations and designs for products ranging from toys to clothing.

It contains the story of our hero Pelu, his origins and home planet, and all the people and relationships he discovers during his time on earth. He meets beautiful damsels in distress from a singer, to a deep sea diver, to two students. That's all I'm gonna say!
The story is spread across 5 chapters. The book is 168 pages of pure Junko Mizuno goodness! The best part? The book says Vol.1 on it! Which means we Junko fans can look forward for more to come!
As it has been quite some time since the publish date I can only hope to find, one day, a second volume to rejoice over.
Before I get into the story, I'd like to first discuss the artwork because that's what initially pushed me to purchase this volume. The company that released this doesn't seem to have any intentions of releasing the final two volumes of the series, which is a shame. The artwork in this is really wonderful. It's a shame that it's not entirely in color, as Junko Mizuno has a wonderful way of playing around with color that emphasizes the surrealness of her work. The large size of the volume doesn't hurt, as it gives us a nice view of all of this artwork.
I think the artwork is what keeps the story from being as depressing as it actually is. There aren't a lot of spots of happiness in this book, as everything is tinted with this feeling of despair throughout it all. Pelu is surprisingly plucky given how futile his attempts to find a wife might appear to the reader. You kind of can't help but root for him even when you cringe at how low his life occasionally gets. And it does get low, as you see him stumbling into what are some pretty grim situations. They're given a lighthearted spin ala Junko Mizuno, but it'll still depress some to see Pelu try and ultimately fail each time in this volume.
However at times I have to say that if I wasn't such a fan of Mizuno's work, this might not appeal to me as much. The idea of a non-Earth persona (not sure if he qualifies as an alien) looking for love in all of the most wrong places is a good story idea and for the most point this volume succeeds.Read more ›
