[Yoshihiro Tatsumi] à Good-bye [western-sahara PDF] Ebook Epub Download Ü Best books, Good Bye Author Yoshihiro Tatsumi This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book Good Bye, Essay By Yoshihiro Tatsumi Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please read And Make A Refission For You Why is it that every subsequent book I read by Tatsumi seems mature and layered than the last I m amazed that many of the collected short story comics in this book were published in the 70s They are just so stark and critical of Japanese society post Hiroshima They are just absolutely amazing And still so real today in depicting the life of a salary man as something of waste in the end as it only drives one s desires in dark directions I was intrigued by the visual effect of characters having very similar faces across different stories, making them seem like a complex whole than separate stories Creepy and highly recommended.
I often watch japanese films and am always taken aback because of the cultural differences shown Yet, for the japanese comics I have read there is rarely that feel Then again the few manga s I have read are of universal theme s of plain fighting stories i.
e Battle Royale So for me to start reading Tatsumi, I realized that while his output in Japan may have been enormous he was still relatively unknown His subject matter is always somewhat depressing and topical and definitely not fantastical which seems to have been the norm , in fact his stories of alienation and abuse and war which is 40 years old is current to our times that it seems that it was written only just yesterday His style is so normal and fluid that aside from the kenji characters and the Japanese iconography, I don t Each story is engrossing, but problematic Apologies for that awful, awful grad school euphemism What I mean is that this man has problems he writes and draws a good story, but he hates women His story about a boy who turns to cross dressing because his mother places too much pressure on him to support the family as the man of the house stinks of the pre 1972 psych drivel still desperately being touted by the ex gay movement The first story about Hiroshima, however, was worth the whole collection.
Being one lonely person surrounded by 130 million contemporaries serves not only to isolate, but to besot with striking similarity amongst each of the persons in question To be neglected and disenfranchised is what it means to be one of many nameless protagonists in a Yoshihiro Tatsumi story.
The Raymond Carver of manga, Tatsumi presents his subjects with unflinching reality an acceptable form of cruelty This is not because he hates his characters, but because in a deeper sense he communes with them The surface levels of basic humanity are prised away, and the underlying pain, anguish, and devilish driving forces become what makes each individual somewhat apart from the millions of others.
The tedium of loveless relationships, disarray of modern living, and compunction of survival from mom One of the most interesting collections of short stories I ve ever read Each of these selections is a little window into someone s falling apart life Much like the films of Todd Solondz, Tatsumi s work is challenging and uncomfortable, but that s what makes it even better.
Yoshihro Tatsumi, Good Bye Drawn and Quarterly, 2008 With every collection of Yoshihiro Tatsumi stories that Drawn and Quarterly releases, I find myself becoming and enad of the man s work I wasn t really sure that was possible after all, DQ s first Tatsumi collection, The Push Man and Other Stories, made my beat reads of the year list back a couple of years ago But, yes, they just keep getting better Good Bye, which collects pieces Tatsumi wrote in the early to mid seventies, does something I m not sure I thought was possible where manga is concerned it shows that it s possible for an artist to come up with overtly political stories in the genre that actually still work as stories Difficult to do in any artistic medium, and thus all the impressive when they actually work Don t try this at home, kiddies Tatsumi is a professional s professional, and he makes it look easy, rather like There is a line that runs through our lives It is where we would like our lives to go We straddle it as best we can Some gifts of birth make it easier, some make it virtually impossible Then life intervenes Somewhere along the way most of us fall off that line to the one side or the other by events we couldn t foresee or the myriad choices we are forced to make Some stray so far from that line that they forget it may have ever existed That describes many of the characters in Yoshihiro Tatsumi s GOOD BYE A ground breaking writer artist who re imagined what comic books could be in Japan the way western writers did by differentiating Graphic Novels from Comic books The writing is sparse, the images seem simple but as they flow one to the next the stifling frustration and angst, desperate grasping for hope beyond The first story in this collection aptly titled Hell is a masterpiece It concerns a photojournalist who gains fame and respect for a heartbreaking photo he took during the aftermath of the U.
S bombing of Hiroshima Years later, he discovers that the subject of his photograph is not quite what it seems The story includes starkly horrific images of atomic bomb victims, and it serves as a complex examination of Japan s status as both the victims and perpetrators of wartime atrocities The rest of the stories find a sense of ennui and frustration in the underbelly of post war Japan Tatsumi s cartooning style is a little reminiscent of Will Eisner s, and like Eisner, he has a talent for crafting compelling small scale melodramas about the lives of cheaters, gamblers, sex workers, drinkers, and losers A few of the stories are dated soc Yoshihiro Tatsumi Gekiga 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
