Showa Era: Vintage Manga Exhibit at QPOP Shop and Gallery


Showa Era: Vintage Manga Exhibit at QPOP Shop and Gallery


In late June, QPOP Shop and Gallery opened a tribute exhibition to Shōwa era manga that also includes tributes to the works of legendary creator, Shotaro Ishinomori, creator of the Kamen Rider and Super Sentai series. 

Artists showcased their work inspired by their favorite Shōwa era manga artists including the Tokusatsu Network’s very first Artist Feature, Kyle Carrozza, who created an Osomatsu-san piece.

The tribute show opened on June 25th and will be on display until July 17th 2016.

In addition to works inspired by Shotaro Ishinomori, artists paid tributes to Osamu Tezuka’s Astro Boy and Black Jack and Phoenix; Kazuhiko Katō’s Lupin III; Go Nagai’s Cutie Honey and Mazinger Z; and Katsuhiro Otomo’s Akira.

QPOP Shop and Gallery is located in Little Tokyo in Los Angeles across from Anime Jungle. According to their upcoming events, QPOP looks to hold a third tokusatsu tribute art show in August showcasing the 50th Anniversary of Ultraman.

Pieces from this show as well as past tribute art shows are available for purchase in store and through QPOP’s online shop.
