The art is crisp even as it depicts horrific, bloody events and the story unfolds like a movie, complete with those "everyone gasps and popcorn flies" type surprises like you'd see in a theatrical feature.

The copious amount of titles, and the often misguided (and limited) guides to graphic novels offer a good starting place but little guidance in going forward. Pulp fiction magazines did include serialized novels, but rarely would a single issue of a pulp include more than one serialized title. Almost (but not quite) wordless, it starts as a hat tip to the jaunty, loose-limbed style of early animated cartoons, and rapidly evolves into a horrifying existentialist meditation about a splatter of ink that takes over a man’s mind and world, the power over life and death that it gives him, and the way it changes his perspective on sex, fear and existence.

Smart, dense, engaging, beautiful, “Lighten Up” was just the latest in career of work that is just better than most other cartoonists’. [Shea Hennum] 11. Manga is meant to be read very quickly; readers do not spend a lot of time on each page, Manga artist design their pages to be scanned rather than read, and they use a lot of imagery and symbols that our brains can interpret very quickly in order to create a three-dimensional story.

Sometimes what you think sounds ambiguous isn’t, that’s true enough, but sometimes what your lawyer thinks isn’t ambiguous is. It also developed a great name for itself in classic reprints by proving, in the early eighties, there was an audience ready to pay for library-worthy volumes of Terry and the Pirates.
