60 Years of Baron Yoshimoto

A retrospective look at the work of an eccentric mangaka and his impressive 60-year career. Baron Yoshimoto debuted as a manga artist in 1959 and became a seminal part of the ‘gekiga’ manga movement in the ’60s and ’70s which popularized comics amongst a mature audience with their dramatic, cinematic and sexy stories. Known for his fashionable and trendy characters, his well-dressed handsome heroes and bevy of beauties have embarked on various adventures often heavily drawing on his own passions for Hollywood movies and martial arts.
