Praise for Iron Wok Jan:

"Call it a guilty pleasure or a fun read, whatever it takes to put a copy of this book in your hand, particularly if you have any cooking ability about you. Even if you don't, this is a book that will make you smile."

"Brilliant! Honestly I do not think there is a more inspired manga out there. Battle cooking in IWJ stretches the imagination and is a unique take on action that never lets down. This volume is the reason why one should pick up this series - cooking that inspires people to want to explore the world of food. Iron Wok Jan inspires readers to explore the diverse world of manga - cooking, sports, mahjong, pachinko, salaryman, OL, teaching, edu-manga... There is a big world out there; IWJ is just the start."

Shinji Saijyo started his manga career in 1992 with Kaiki Doumei (What Mysterious Fellows!) in Shonen Champion from Akita Publishing. He is best known for Iron Wok Jan, which was serialized for five years from 1995-2000 with a total of 27 volumes.
