Yoshihiro Tatsumi, Black Blizzard

Yoshihiro Tatsumi is probably well-known to those of you here that follow Garo, as being one of the main proponents of the gekiga (realism manga) movement that led to the formation of Garo magazine. The western newspapers in Japan have picked up on the release of Black Blizzard by Drawn and Quarterly, with both the Japan Times and Daily Yomiuri running reviews of it. I'm just mentioning this here in case you want to check them out.

(From the D&Q site, for review purposes only.)

Note that the English wiki doesn't list many of Tatsumi's titles. The Japanese wiki is more complete, but of course it's in Japanese...
