Latest Ima Ichiko

Phantom Moon Tower 3 arrived Monday; I finished it Tuesday evening. Then went straight to her fourth Silk Roads anthology, The Master of Nightmare Castle, from last year. These are the stories that appear in Eyes' Comics Gensou Fantasy series, that I've also been reading through my copies of. Dry lands and demons aren't at all the same as Shouwa shopkeepers and geisha, no way no how, but one takes what one can get.

Random observations are that Ima Ichiko still can't draw people in hats and still insists on trying; and that her recurring motif is, in fact, cross-dressing children. There's two I can think of off-hand in 100 Demons, and another I just re-encountered in The Master of Nightmare Castle.
