Chainsaw Man creator Tatsuki Fujimoto is apparently a big fan of the sci-fi horror comedy PG: Psycho Goreman, as the manga artist released a new illustration featuring characters from the B-movie tribute.
The new image by Fujimoto was released to internet by Twitter account Manga Mogura. The new black and white illustration depicts protagonist Mimi posing in front of the titular Psycho Goreman. It is not known if this illustration was officially commissioned to promote the new film, or if Fujimoto simply wanted to create some fan-art. The illustration is the second work to emerge from Fujimoto recently, as the Chainsaw Man creator also recently published a new one-shot manga entitled Look Back, which tells the story of two aspiring manga artists. The 140-page standalone story is available to read online for free via VIZ Media's Shonen Jump website, and will also be released in print at a later date.

PG: Psycho Goreman is a Canadian sci-fi movie that tells the story of two young children who accidentally resurrect an all-powerful alien overlord. This overlord is named "Psycho Goreman" by one of the children, Mimi, and is forced to do her bidding due to her possessing the crystal that gives him his power. While Mimi teaches PG about life on Earth and hunky boys, an alien warrior named Pandora descends to Earth to stop PG once and for all.
The horror comedy shares a few qualities, including its dark sense of humor and love of gore, with Fujimoto's own Chainsaw Man. The popular manga series has been one of the biggest hits to emerge from Shonen Jump in the last few years and will soon be adapted into an anime by Attack on Titan and Jujutsu Kaisen studio MAPPA. The manga is localized and distributed in North America by VIZ Media, though tracking down a physical copy of the series may be difficult due to the on-going manga shortage.
