Fukushima Devil Fish TPB (2018 Breakdown Press) comic books 2017-2019
Story and art by Katsumata Susumu.
Fukushima Devil Fish: Anti-Nuclear Manga collects Katsumata Susumu's nuclear energy related work from the '80s and '90s, produced in the wake of investigative news reports about unreported accidents and dangerous working conditions at Japan's nuclear power plants. Due to hazardous working conditions, these workers were commonly known as "nuclear gypsies" and "irradiated laborers," embodying as they did the fact that all was not sound in an industry that vigorously promoted itself as perfectly "clean and safe."
