1st printing. Story and art by Shigeru Mizuki. Kitaro and the Great Tanuki War features more adventures of Shigeru Mizuki's beloved yokai boy. In the epic title story, Kitaro battles the tanuki, a Japanese animal that features prominently in the country's yokai legends. The furry beasts draw on the power of the blood moon to awaken the monstrous catfish that lives in the depths of the Earth. The twisting of the catfish causes earthquakes that threaten to destroy all of Japan. With his yokai allies captured, Kitaro is the only one left who can take on the great tanuki and his army. Will he be up for the challenge? Softcover, 5-in. x 7-in., 176 pages, B&W. NOTE: These are Japanese manga-style GNs and are meant to be read right-to-left. Cover price $12.95.
