The Japanese artist Chimei Hamada (b.1917) studied at the Tokyo University of Fine Arts before serving in the army in China during World War II. In 1950 he began a series of etchings, Elegy for a New Conscript, in which he translated his experiences of war into grotesque, satirical and hallucinatory monochrome images, some of which remind me a little of the work of Alfred Kubin or even Goya, although others are something else entirely. There isn't a great deal of his work to be seen online, but there's a few more images here, here, and here.
