A new depiction of humanity was memorialized by Japan’s autobiographical graphic novelist, Keiji Nakazawa, in publications including I Saw It: The Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima, a Survivor’s True Story;1 Suddenly, One Day;2 and Struck by Black Rain.3 Following the silent atomic bomb blooming in Hiroshima, the onset of death meant the child narrator’s “new normal” was to see friends and neighbors with loosening and dripping skin, all creating a monstrous effect. Nakazawa’s work explored what we see and do not see, what is contained and cannot be contained, as well as the concept of form shattering.
