"Grappler Baki" Author Keisuke Itagaki Illustrates Cover of "Crime and Punishment"

Enomoto and Oreimo's Kanzaki Hiro were guest artists on previous volumes

Fyodor Dostoyevsky's classic of Russian literature Crime and Punishment has inspired a number of manga, including work from Osamu Tezuka and two currently running series.  Naoyuki Ochiai's is retold through the eyes of a struggling Japanese writer, while Gatarou F Man has an obscene, punk version. Part of the gimmick of the latter is to invite guest cover artists, including fight manga legend Keisuke Itagaki for the new, third volume.
