There’s no one else doing manga quite like Haruko Ichikawa does it. Not only is her work recognizable at a glance from its simple, spindly character designs and striking compositions, her stories tread a fine line between hard sci-fi and surrealism—or perhaps sci-fi as surrealism—that few other creators care to walk.

Kaoru Mori is, perhaps above all else, consistent. That consistency, both for the high quality of her works and her particular fascination with women, have earned her manga a well-deserved reputation as a must-read for anyone interested in the medium.
