About the Author
was first published in April, 1995 in Kodansha's monthly comic magazine, Bonbon.
The Jing manga has inspired a brand new anime series from Sony, which began running in Japan in May, 2002. Kumakura-sensei is now at work on an all-new version of the Jing saga, featuring more European-style artwork.
This is a fantasy adventure which unfolds in worlds beyond human imagination. A city where the world's robbers meet; a casino devoured by evil; a haunted ship with a living anchor; a speeding train run by a Dodo bird; a floating island ruled by a mask; a large sculpture in the sky which waits for a sacrifice; a girl with a tattoo of a famous picture all over her body ... These are just some of the sights encountered by Jing, a thief so accomplished he can steal the stars from the sky.
Yuichi Kumakura's seminal manga series is a visual fantasy classic in the tradition of Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and the films of Miyazaki Hayao.
