One good thing to come out of 2020 is that cartoonist and essayist Yoshiharu Tsuge, now age 82 and arguably the most influential artist that drew for the Garo manga magazine, has finally allowed translation of some of his manga. Compiled as “The Swamp,” it contains 11 of Tsuge’s works.

Tsuge’s stories address a wide range of heavy topics, including poverty in both Edo Period (1603-1868) and modern-day Japan, sexual desire, family and parenthood, and violence.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
