Nuclear Gypsies in Art in America

In the lead up to the translated publication of Katsumata Susumu’s Fukushima Devil Fish: Anti-Nuclear Manga, Ryan Holmberg writes in Art in America on how Japanese artists – especially manga authors – have taken on the growing issue of atomic power in the aftermath of the 2011 Fukushima reactor crisis. Dr Ryan Holmberg is Academic Associate at the Sainsbury Institute and Hakuho Foundation Japanese Research Fellow at Waseda University in Tokyo.

Fukushima Devil Fish: Anti-Nuclear Manga edited and translated by Ryan will be published by Breakdown Press and due out in Spring 2016.
