Fukushima Devil Fish by Katsumata Susumu

Anti-Nuclear Manga collects nuclear energy-related work from the '80s and '90s, produced in the wake of investigative news reports about accidents and dangerous working conditions at Japan's nuclear power plants.

Due to poor pay, hazardous working conditions and migrant status, these workers were commonly known as 'nuclear gypsies' and 'irradiated labourers' ... As explained in an accompanying essay by historian Ryan Holmberg, these 'gypsies' became politicised symbols in the late '70s and '80s, embodying the fact that all was not sound in the industry.
