MATCH.interior mixSM Nice art: Oji Suzuki
Oji Suzuki is the latest in D&Q’s gekiga projects, and
Tom Devlin explains why:

Oji Suzuki’s A Single Match, shares in this tradition. Suzuki’s stories are largely grounded in a post-WWII small town world with distinct flashes of surrealist imagery representing the emotional states of the characters. The lines of reality and fantasy are so blurred that initial readings of each story leave the reader less sure of what happened plot-wise but certain what happened emotionally (I actually think this emotionality is one of the defining features of these great Japanese comics. Rarely have I been so thoroughly moved by what I’ve read than when I read gekiga.).


Indeed, it’s hard to imagine better designed pages than the ones Devlin posts.
