Join Q Pop for this very special event and show celebrating one of the most influential and popular “GODS” of manga, GO NAGAI!!
Go Nagai is credited with creating the Super Robot genre and for designing the first mecha robots piloted by a user from within a cockpit with Mazinger Z. He is also credited with introducing sex into japanese comics.

He is also credited with creating the” Magical Girls ” genre which would evolve into Sailor Moon and similar creations.
He is best known in the US for creating Cutie Honey, Devilman, and Mazinger Z in the 1970s. Many of the other Robots in the Mattel line of toys, Shogun Warriors were his creations.
In Japan he has had many more popular titles and anime/tokusatsu shows based on his creations.
Always controversial, Go Nagai has pushed the envelope for comics in Japan inspiring countless talent afterward.
