I'm Reading Comeeks

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.

I want to go back!

Manabé Shima - Chavouet,  Florent

So much!


Manabeshima Island Japan This is another wonderful graphic novel about the authors experiences in Japan, this time of island life on Manabeshima.  The artwork is just beautiful and like his other work so detailed that readers could spend hours pouring over the pages and still miss something.


It made me really really really want to go back to Japan, I didn't think that I could possibly want to go more than I did when I'd never been to Japan, but I think by spending three weeks there I only whetted my appetite...now I'm just thinking how much I didn't get to see!


For those who've been to Japan and for those who've never even thought about it, this is a highly recommended glimpse into the country from the eyes of a traveler.
