Manga Artist Shigeru Mizuki Dies of Heart Failure

Manga artist Shigeru Mizuki, who was best know for his GeGeGe no Kitaro series, died today due to heart failure after falling earlier in the month. In terms of classic manga, Mizuki is up there along with Osamu Tezuka, the creator of Mighty Atom / Astro Boy, and specialized in the yokai genre, which is based on Japanese folktales regarding spirits and the paranormal. RIP, Shigeru-San.
