Ebisu Yoshikazu

Ebisu Yoshikazu (b. 1947) is a Japanese comics author and actor. As a child, he drew manga influenced by Osamu Tezuka and Mitsuteru Yokoyama. He later discovered the emerging gekiga ("dramatic pictures") style. Ebisu Yoshikazu's work first appeared in Garo in 1973, at the tail end of underground manga's first golden age, and his darkly menacing, surreal comedies have been a mainstay ever since. He was included in Blast Books' 2018 anthology Comics Underground Japan. More recently, he has become more widely known as a television star, starring in the 2016 film Ninkyo Yaro ("Heroism Guy"); he also voices characters in the anime series Bananya and Magical Girl.
