About the author (2004)

Although best known for his semi-autobiographical work "Panorama of Hell", Hino Hideshi has over 200 titles in print. Hideshi Hino was born in China in 1946 and soon after moved to Tokyo with his mother. The immediate post-war landscape and widespread destruction that struck him then reoccur throughout his work, as do the grotesquely depicted characters - many tormented by twisted spines, deformed eyes and mishapen bodies. This inimitable style has helped make him JapanŐs master of horror manga.
