Shigeru Mizuki’s Hitler TP

Seventy years after his death, Adolf Hitler remains a mystery. With Shigeru Mizuki’s Hitler, the manga-ka (Kitaro, NonNonba, Showa: A History of Japan) delves deep into the history books to create an absorbing and eloquent portrait of Hitler’s life. Beginning with Hitler’s time in Austria as a starving art student and ending with a Germany in ruins, Shigeru Mizuki retraces the path Hitler took in life, coolly examining his charismatic appeal and his calculated political maneuvering. In Mizuki’s signature style, which populates incredibly realistic backgrounds with cartoony people, Japan’s most famous living cartoonist has created an overview of Hitler’s life as fascinating as it is informative.
