Junko Mizuno's Cinderalla is this uniquely styled artist's take on the classic fairy tale. Her delirious color illustrations, while displaying super-flat cuteness, also incorporate elements of grotesquerie and politically sharp black humor. Her style has been described as "cute but deadly" and "grotesque-cute." Dad and the step-sisters are zombies, "Cinderalla's" family runs a yakitori restaurant, and the sickly Prince is on permanent I-V support!
Mizuno turns this classic story about class, labor, and the social role of women on its head with a distinctly post-pop, post feminist consciousness.
