I dedicate this blog to comics in all forms, manga, autobio, superhero, art books, etc. And of course, since I need a challenge, I've decided that I'll read and write (short) reviews for 365 comics during 2015.
Another graphic novel travelogue, this time of a 15 year old visiting her grandparents in Japan. Though Christine Inzer was born in Japan she's spent most of her life in the U.S. She revisits some favorite places, including a fast food chain called Mosburger, while also visiting cultural sites and observing the culture of her homeland.
It's a fun book, Inzer doesn't mind poking fun at herself as she navigates the train on her own, confronts Japanese toilets and is forced to get up at 5 am for nothing! I was nice to see how she lovingly draws her own family and notes that her brother wouldn't give her a hug! Guess he's at that age, the too cool for hugging age.
I'm looking forward to seeing more comics from Inzer in the future!
