Original Novel by Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky
“Crime and Punishment” is one of Dostoevsky’s five masterpieces, and now Japanese genius cartoonist, Man-F-Gataro is going to turn it into a comic book.
Dostoevsky’s “Crime and Punishment” opened a new door for literature and inspired so many other authors to follow. Other cartoonist including Osamu Tezuka covered this piece of work. And what should we expect from Man-F-Gataro’s version?
As a fan, I was expecting that he would distort the original story, but from the genius or the vagabond cartoonist, I received so much more than I expected. Just amazing.
The cover even exceeds your expectation……
The cover of three volumes out of four are done by different cartoonists.
Volume 1 : Yoshitaka Enomoto(A Japanese illustrator)
Volume 2 : Kanzakihiro a.k.a Hiroyuki Oda(A Japanese illustrator and an animator)
Volume 3 : Keisuke Itagaki(A Japanese manga artist)
Volume 4 : Man-F-Gataro
Turn the page and it looks like a novel before the main chapter……the main character appears!
Ebizo? Who is this? It looks nothing like Raskolnikov. Is he even ignoring the original settings??
Oops, I can’t turn this article into a spoiler. Please get a copy for what comes next.¥
By the way, this “Crime and Punishment” is one of the rare occasions where Gataro’s comic book did not get terminated during the series. It will go down in history.
Lastly, I would like to introduce some his works here.
