Tonight, Saturday September 18th 2010 from 5PM until 7PM, join Giant Robot for the opening reception and book signing featuring manga creator and fine artist Junko Mizuno.
Mizuno's newest work is Little Fluffy Gigolo Pelu, a comic tale of a cute extraterrestrial creature that comes to Earth determined to find true happiness in the form of a human bride. His search takes him from the surface of his fantastic alien planet to an off- kilter modern Japan where Pelu meets aspiring singers, sassy girls, paint- sniffing bad boys, and the body- switching students of a mysterious high school. Artist Junko Mizuno unleashes her unique graphic storytelling sensibilities on a tale that's frequently adorable, sometimes grotesque, and surprisingly moving.
