Masakazu Katsura
Title: Double Dunk

Masakazu Katsura’s comic writing includes the works of Video Girl Ai, Shadow Lady, Zetman and Woman in the Man. With his first published work, Yume Senshi Wingman in 1983, Katsura introduced a lasting theme – Superheroism. To this day the artist explores its tragic limits. “My Double Dunk began as an illustration for the cover of Wise magazine. By coincidence it was an illustration of a young girl wearing Dunks. With the figure, I was conscious about making something new and something of the future using transparent materials. It’s transparent silver enamel, a new color combination for the Dunk.”
