The Mysterious Underground Men

PictureBox, November 20, 2013

Originally published in 1948, The Mysterious Underground Men tells the story of Mimio the talking rabbit as he struggles to prove his humanity while helping his friends save earth from an invasion of angry humanoid termites. Inspired by Bernhard Kellermann's Der Tunnel (1913), Buster Crabbe's Flash Gordon, and various American comics including Milt Gross' He Done Her Wrong (1930), The Mysterious Underground Men also provides a rare glimpse into the diverse Western sources of young Tezuka's imagination. Printed in the manga's original color and size, this is the first English translation of the book.
