If Osamu Tezuka is the "God of Manga," then Go Nagai is manga's legendary dirty uncle, a transgressive figure, enemy to the PTA who pioneered genres from combining mecha to transforming magic girls. The Mazinger Z and Cutie Honey author will soon be getting an interesting tribute in America with the Q Pop shop/gallery, located in the historic Little Tokyo area of Los Angeles, planning an exhibit in June.
