Kitaro’s Travels – 2 volumes / Cornelius
A lover of popular tales and the marvelous that seeps into the interstices of everyday life, Shigeru Mizuki has placed the yokai, these supernatural beings who inhabit the backstage of our world, at the center of a creation that constantly oscillates between fantasy, humor and poetry.
Hugely popular in Japan, where not a child grows up without devouring his adventures, Kitaro repelling him is the emblematic hero of a work that focuses on monsters to better speak of men. His description makes the hair stand on end: the ultimate scion of a tribe of undead, Kitaro was born one-eyed, crawling out of the womb of his mother’s corpse, doomed to wander in a world that wants no him ! However, far from the suffocating tragedy that this disastrous summary suggests, Kitaro repelling it is a delightful series. The tribulations of this kid responsible for resolving the conflicts between humans and yokai are a rare pleasure, subtly combining darkness with lightness.
