I just received my copy of the Bento Bestiary in the mail from Nobrow Press. These modern spins on 18th Century Toriyama Sekien's far east mythological monsters are beautifully drawn and amazingly printed in an all too cute hardback book. The back stories are written with clever prose and humorous wit. Plus I've been a fan of Ben Newman since I bought his short visual comic Ouroboros last year. Great stuff!
