Read full description of the books Ravina the witch ?:Junko Mizuno impose un style unique dans le manga contemporain : un style extravagant inspiré par le shojo et le manga d'horreur. Elle aime surprendre, proposer une autre vision étrange, drôle et fantaisiste. Elle est essentiellement connue pour avoir détourné des contes classiques comme Cendrillon ou Hansel et Gretel. Une singularité qui se retrouve dans Ravina the Witch ? Cette fable nous conte l'histoire de Ravina, une jeune orpheline qui a grandi dans une décharge avec pour seule compagnie, une horde de corbeaux. Mais un jour, sa vie bascule : avant de succomber, une sorcière lui confie une mystérieuse baguette magique. Un nouveau monde s'ouvre alors à Ravina, celui des hommes.
Read information about the authorJunko Mizuno (水野純子 Mizuno Junko) is a Japanese manga artist.
Mizuno's drawing style, which mixes childish sweetness and cuteness with terror and erotica, has often been termed a Gothic kawaii or kawaii noir style. However, Mizuno has stated that she does not feel comfortable about those terms, as she doesn't want to label her work with words because it keeps changing and is influenced by many different genres.
Mizuno has stated that her work is influenced by shōjo manga works; this influence is exhibited through her use of bright colorization and the large eyes she provides for her characters. Her art has a decidedly pop-art and psychedelic flair, and a sizable proportion of her published work is colored, rather than the black and white format typical of most Japanese comics.
A part of Mizuno's oeuvre revolves around fairy tales, showing titles such as Cinderalla, Princess Mermaid and Hansel&Gretel. The story behind this is that after the release of Pure Trance, Mizuno was approached by a publisher who was interested in working with her because of her unique style. However, this publisher did not like the story of Pure Trance as it differed a lot from mainstream comics at the time. Because of this, he suggested she'd make comics about fairy tales, which were commercially more viable. Mizuno has stated that as she was just starting out her career as a professional artist, she decided to take the opportunity, and that while in hindsight she was not very comfortable with the situation, it was a good experience for her.
Mizuno has participated in the Angoulême International Comics Festival and the Lakes International Comic Art Festival. In 2007 Mizuno's work was on display at the Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Los Angeles, in an exhibit titled Heart Throb and at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, California in an exhibit titled Tender Succubus. In 2014, Mizuno held an exhibition of her work titled Belle: the Art of Junko Mizuno at the Atomica Gallery in London.
