Synopses & Reviews
With influences ranging from 19th century atrocity prints to the Sex Pistols, and obsessions with horror, scatology and human freaks, Maruo has taken the "erotic-grotesque" (ero-guro) style of manga, a unique fusion of sex and violence to its ultimate extreme.
Ultra-Gash Inferno is the ultimate compendium of Suehiro Maruo's most shocking and graphically precise work, containing nine psycho-nightmares never before translated and published in English. With a translation by James Havoc (author of Butchershop In The Sky) and Takako Shinkado, and an introduction by Romain Slocombe, Ultra-Gash Inferno is a revelatory cross-cultural event in comic-book publishing.
Suehiro Maruo is also the author of Camelia Girl (published in English as Mr Arashi's Amazing Freak Show).
Parental discretion advised.
Japanese manga at its most extreme, exciting and innovative.
