Did Ishinomori ever do a manga about Takeshi Hongo’s travels through Europe?
It never happened in the manga series. Ishinomori dealt with Hongo’s depart quite differently from the TV version. On the other hand, the Kamen Rider Black manga has Kotaro travelling around the world to fight Golgon.
I feel like we definitely need more Shotaro Ishinomori in english.
He’s been documented as the second most prolific figure in the manga industry, after Osamu Tezuka.
Like, all of The Voyage of Ryu. It’s his most beautiful comic, draftsmanship-wise
from what I understand we only have three things in english from mr. ishinomori: cyborg 009, the zelda comic…. and … some guide to economics.
all of which are out of print.
Kikaider, Inazuman, Skull Man and Kamen Rider were all released officially by Comixology. Ryu no Michi and Sabu to Ichi are almost finished by Happy Scans. Henshin Ninja Arashi and Kamen Rider Black are fully translated and they’re still working on some others.
