There’s this manga I’ve been reading lately and one of the things that caught my eye about it is the dust jacket of the graphic novel volumes:
Do you see the perspective trompe l’oeil? Pretty neat right?
The artist, Yusuke Murata of Eyeshield 21, created a pretty neat perspective trick on the flap of his new manga series with author ONE called OnePunch-Man. Apparently, this isn’t the first time Murata’s pulled some perspective tricks. Check out his “manga” posted through Twitterand translated in English, courtesy of Crunchyroll .
For those curious about the OnePunch-Man manga, it’s a story about a normal-looking guy who’s become so powerful that he ends all his fights with one punch. Without the excitement of battle, the struggle to become better, and becoming sadly bald – our hero has reached the top and is frankly miserable. OnePunch-Man is a comedic story poking fun at superheroes and the superhero genre with this unconventional main character who just wants to grow his hair back… and maybe fight a battle-to-the-death. Will he ever find happiness?
OnePunch-Man is a webcomic with Murata’s work found here and ONE’s original version here. Published and extra chapters of Murata’s version are also available on Jump magazines or you can also pick up the first two manga volumes as seen above. Check out the manga if you can!
