This is a visual encyclopedia teeming with “super unique” monsters from over 1000 foreign monster paintings by Shigeru Mizuki.

The world is divided into five areas: Europe, America, Africa, Asia, and Oceania, introducing monsters living in each area, and special features on “Monsters of Greek Mythology” and “Demons of the World” have been added.
A major point is the use of high-end color management technology to scan the original paintings, faithfully reproducing the fine brush strokes and exquisite colors. Please enjoy the newly revived masterpieces of monster paintings.
The marker is the glaring Backbeard.
