Junko Mizuno's Cinderalla@ Nucleus

Junk Mizuno's cute, yet sick and adult worlds have captured many international fans. She's been part of Nucleus before, but not showing off one of her classics in such a way. I have read her fractured zombie infested Cinderalla and it's a disgusting treat.

Ms Mizuno will be there in person to sign and greet fans.

"FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, all 120 pages of original ink drawings and cover illustrations will be on display and available for collectors. PLUS, each illustration will be accompanied by one-of-five special edition gicleƩ prints only available through the purchase of an original illustration."
