Special Pelu set! Includes signed copies of Little Fluffy Gigilo Pelu, Volumes 1 and 2 —plus a special figurine designed by Junko Mizuno! Limited availability.
Volume 1: Little Fluffy Gigolo Pelu is a comic tale of a cute extraterrestrial creature that comes to Earth determined to find himself true happiness in the form of a human bride. Our hero's search takes him from the surface of his fantastic alien planet to an off- kilter modern Japan where Pelu meets aspiring singers, sassy girls, paint-sniffing bad boys, and the body-switching students of a mysterious high school.
Volume 2: Pelu’s quest to have a child continues to unfold across a surreal Tokyo cityscape populated by mythological creatures, loveable losers, living puppets, nymphomaniacs, and a visitor from Pelu’s own home world. Will Pelu finally gain the confidence to woo a bride? Can Pelu finally find a girl willing to stick around long enough to have his baby?
Artist Junko Mizuno unleashes her unique graphic storytelling sensibilities on a tale that’s frequently adorable, sometimes grotesque, and surprisingly moving.
Highly accomplished illustrator Junko Mizuno began her career as a graphic novelist in Japan with her original graphic novel Pure Trance, followed by manga adaptions of Grimm’s Fairy Tales Princess Mermaid, Cinderella and Hansel & Gretel. As a rare female comic creator in Japan, Mizuno pioneered stories of powerful female protagonists within imaginary worlds that are equal parts American psychedelia, contemporary kawaii and gothic horror. Mizuno’s sweetly titillating horrific depictions of classic tales appealed to international audiences and she soon developed an intense cult following worldwide. Her most recent narrative work includes Hell Babies, Ravina the Witch and the ongoing series Little Fluffy Gigolo Pelu.
