Taiyo Matsumoto - Brothers of Japan and Zero
I got a few more Taiyo Matsumoto books in Japan too. Here's the first 'Brothers of Japan'. It's a book of his short stories. There's a wide range of different stories. Here's one about a gorilla riding in a motorbike race. The drawing is all great as usual with amazing lines, and great use of black and white.
Also I got 'Zero' which is about a boxer. Here's a double page from it.
This one is great too. I always like how he puts so many animals in his stories, just wandering about in the backgrounds. This one seems more like a standard comic, with more of a usual story, but it's still very idiosyncratic.
