Pictures of the Floating World

Comments - Fantastic, unusual comic design featuring a range of subjects from the "Floating World" in Edo era Japan. At upper right, two men burst into pieces while below them, a giant hand reaches for two men who are fight. At lower left, a beauty pulls a seated man on a cart with wheels made of three giant sets of lips and teeth. Just above, two men whose heads have been partially cut in two enjoy refreshments. The figure at upper left shows a man eating what appear to be sword blades while below another fellow gnaws on an old man's leg. A crazy, creative design we've never before seen.
