So just what is it about this fascination with the Japanese teenage girl? We're talking about that extreme variant of her-the highly evolved creature of Japan's frenetically trendy consumer culture ...the ko-gal. And just what goes on inside a kogal's overstimulated mind? In Short Cuts, esteemed underground manga artist Usamaru Furuya takes a journey into the world of the ko-gal, refracting it through an inimitable collage of styles, innovative layouts, and bizarre scenarios. Not to mention a disjunctive sense of humor to put some of all this nonsense in perspective.
Usamarv Furuya first began publishing in the pages of the legendary avantgarde comics magazine Garo. Since then he has gone on to publish in major weekly magazines in Japan, such as Young Sunday (where Short Cuts was first serialized). In English, his work has appeared in PULP: The Manga Magazine and Secret Comics Japan.
