Japanese cityscape of the 1960s depicted in American comic book style


The appeal of American comic book style lies in its dynamic and powerful lines, often drawn with a high degree of expressiveness. Works in this style are characterized by vibrant colors, making use of vivid hues that create a visually exciting impression and heighten excitement.

During the 1960s, Japan underwent rapid urbanization, with the country’s cities experiencing significant changes such as the advent of a car-oriented society, the expansion of commercial and entertainment facilities, and other effects of its period of high economic growth.

It would be exciting to imagine what such a rapidly changing urban landscape of Japan during its period of high economic growth might look like if depicted in an American comic book style.

One characteristic of American comics is that they often feature stories with superheroes.

As a result, when people see a cityscape drawn in an “Amekomi” style, they may expect to see a superhero appear in the scene.

Another characteristic of “Amekomi” works is that they often feature bold composition and dramatic scenes, which can have a strong impact on viewers.

This kind of production can create an atmosphere where it feels like a superhero should appear in the cityscape. However, it’s important to note that not all “Amekomi” cityscapes necessarily include superheroes.

“Amekomi” works are used in a variety of genres besides superheroes, and the expressive power of this style can be used to tell many different kinds of stories, including those set in urban environments.
