Junko Mizuno. Never heard of her? I'm not surprised. She's a Japanese artist that has had 4 books published in the US (translated, of course). Her first was an art book called Hell Babies. Her second book was Cinderalla, a very unique telling of the classic fairytale Cinderella. The third was a pocket-size artbook. Her fourth and most recent book is another twisted fairytale, Hanzel and Gretel.

I adore Junko-chan's art. About the only way to describe it is a quote from a review, saying her style is like "PowerPuff Girls on acid". Her books, while containing some nudity, are so much fun. ^^ They give you a small glimpse into a different level of Japanese culture than society is used to seeing.
