Tadao Tsuge is the stuff of legend. Though, until quite recently, he was nearly unknown outside Japan, the veteran comic artist was one of the pioneers of alternative manga and a key contributor of avant-garde magazine Garo between the late 1960s and early 1970s.

The manga stories mentioned in this interview can be found in Trash Market (Drawn & Quarterly), Slum Wolf (New York Review of Comics) and Tale of the Beast (Black Hook Press).

The series assumes you know a minimal amount of Gundam’s backstory, but we’ll fill you in on that in the next two paragraphs. Continue Reading
