Manga Versions Of Our Favorite New Wave Artists From The 80s

In the 1980s Japanese comic artists were just as obsessed with the New Wave music scene as the rest of the world, and their obsession spilled out onto the pages of manga magazines.

Drawing these musical characters in a manga art style magically transforms those famous faces into something fresh and new again, like a caricature only less jarring.

In fact, our favorite New Wave heroes look oh-so right when rendered in that sometimes cute, sometimes creepy manga style.

These amazing illustrations are from a 1980s magazine called 8 Beat Gag, a magical manga mag where we can see Robert Smith transformed into some sort of yeti and Siouxsie Sioux beating Girlschool in a footrace.
