Suehiro Maruo Pens New 1-Shot 'Olanda-san' Manga

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

Manga creator Suehiro Maruo published a new 32-page one-shot manga titled "Olanda-san" (The Dutchman) in this year's 24th issue of Kodansha's Morning magazine on Thursday. The manga centers on a missionary and a nameless boy, both connected by the "two hells" that are Auschwitz and Nagasaki.

The one-shot is part of the magazine's series of "Carnaval" one-shots that celebrate the magazine's 35th anniversary.

Hiroshi Harada adapted Maruo's 1984 erotic horror manga Mr. Arashi's Amazing Freak Show (Shojo Tsubaki) into an anime film in 1992. The manga also inspired a live-action film adaptation in May 2017. Blast Books published the manga's one compiled volume in North America in 1993. Maruo won the "New Artist Prize" of the 13th Annual Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prizes in 2009, although he has been drawing manga professionally since 1980.

Last Gasp Publishing released Maruo's The Strange Tale of Panorama Island manga in 2013. The manga was nominated for the 2014 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards.

Maruo recently ended his Tomino no Jigoku (Tomino the Damned) manga last November.
