This title explores the lives of several famous eccentrics and bizarre personages. From exceedingly violent baseball great Ty Cobb; to the mystery Lady Winchester who believed non-stop and nonsensical building of her house would protect her from vengeful spirits; the healthy but deadly infectious Typhoid Mary; bizarre and fickle 70's promoter Kou Yoshio; and the misunderstood, neurotic electricity great Nikola Tesla.

Lives of Eccentrics (or Henjin Henkutsu Retsuden) delves on the common theme of eccentricity and weirdness of humanity in Hirohiko Araki's works, this time through a series of small biographies about different famous eccentrics like the severely neurotic genius inventor Nikola Tesla and several other bizarre individuals that have left their mark in our history.

The art varies greatly through the course of the manga seeing how the gap between the release of the chapters has been so long. The series starts with the style Araki used in his early career while drawing Phantom Blood and is therefore a great example of the author's artistic evolution. read more
