Sagawa's Manga: A bizarre comic book written and drawn by the Kobe Cannibal

Issei Sagawa (1949-2022) Introduction

Japanese Writer, Painter, and Porn Actor

Issei Sagawa (1949-2022) was a Japanese writer, painter and porn actor who achieved notoriety for the killing, dismemberment and cannibalization of Dutch student Renée Hartevelt in Paris in 1981.

Post-Prison Attempts at Anonymity

After five years of confinement in French prisons and Japanese psychiatric wards, Sagawa, labelled “The Kobe Cannibal” by the international press, attempted to disappear anonymously into society. Despite changing his name, his efforts to keep a low profile were met with failure and the press was prompt to cover his every move. He then chose to live out under the spotlight, claiming his status as a monster and media performer pandering to the sensational tastes of the public.

Creative Endeavors

One of his most shocking projects was to describe his crime in graphic details in comic book form. First published in 2000 in his native country, Sagawa’s Manga is the first of his books to be released in English, and depicts a truly unique mental picture of the cannibal’s obsessions and dark fantasy life.
