So last month El Vez clued me in to the seductively stylish, action packed world of Yuki 7 and her crack team of super spies The Gadget Girls with a duo of promos; Looks That Kill and A Kiss from Tokyo. Inspired to do a bit of investigating of my own (otherwise known as following the link), I was lucky enough to get my hands on a copy of Kevin Dart’s new Yuki 7 book (with story by Elizabeth Ito), Looks That Kill and haven’t been able to go an hour without lovingly turning its pages.
Telling the story of Yuki’s mission to track down the immaculately dastardly Twilight Diva and retrieve a special pair of panties that would render its possessor the most fashionable and powerful person in the world, the 72-page book boasts artwork from 13 guest artists alongside Dart, an acetate dust jacket and a DVD featuring both promos along with several special bonus features. Pre-orders were officially launched 16th July with a party at LA’s Q POP! and you can get your hands on a copy here.
There are some things which are nice to look over once or twice and then put aside, Looks That Kill is a book that I’m seriously considering buying a second copy of for the day I inevitably wear this copy out with my incessant re-reading. But don’t take my word for it, have a look for yourself:
MarBelle has a strange compulsion to watch as many films as he can get his hands on and find jobs that give him a legitimate excuse to drill filmmakers about their work. Directors Notes is the latest incarnation of this disorder and so much cheaper than film school. Twitter: @MarBelle
