Honeytrap hero: Junko Mizuno

Junko Mizuno's girls have big anime eyes with fluttery lashes, beehive hair-dos and perky D cup breasts. They wield chainsaws, eat their mutant offspring and practise voodoo magic; whilst naked. Junko started drawing when she was a little girl. She would lock herself in her room to hide from her bullies and draw the ideal woman, pretty and strong. She changed her style of illustration when she watched Sailor Moon for the first time, but it wasn't until 1996 that she got her first break, when she was asked by Japanese techno label, Avex Trax, to design the front cover of their techno compilation "Pure Trance". They loved it so much that they asked her to do a story that they could serialise and give away with each edition of their compilation.
