A manga artist who worked from the early 70s until his death in 2006. He was a great friend of the famous and influential {{Mangaka}} GoNagai, who he worked as an assistant for during the earlier years of his career. His most famous work by far is the mecha series ''Manga/GetterRobo'', though he himself isn't actually famous for it. Thanks to Ishikawa's willingness to credit GoNagai for helping him out with the series during its early planning stages, ''Manga/GetterRobo'' is wrongly considered a GoNagai work far more often (Dynamic Productions regularly crossing the series over with ''MazingerZ'' and and it's sequels, not to mention their almost symbiotic appearances in the ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' series does not help).

Ken Ishikawa is known for his distinctive art style and character designs, which usually involve lots of sketchy black lines, crazy spinning eyes and [[SlasherSmile insane grins]]. Unlike GoNagai, he tends to avoid fanservice and excessive violence. In addition to HumongousMecha, many of his manga were about ancient Japan and even in his sci-fi works, themes and philosophies taken from eastern spirituality are often present.

* ''GetterRobo'' -- His most famous work, the first CombiningMecha series.
* ''Kyomu Senki'' -- Less known than ''GetterRobo'', but just as long and considered equally good. Each series takes place in a different time period, from the Heian era to the 70th century, and work as a stand-alone tale.
