Roger Dahl's Comic Japan: Best of Zero Gravity Cartoons from The Japan Times-The Lighter Side of Tokyo Life
Roger Dahl's Comic Japan is a collection of the best of the Zero Gravity cartoon strip, a favorite feature of Japan's leading English-language daily newspaper The Japan Times, since 1991. In this anthology, it is made available in book form for the first time.
The Japan comic strip stars Larry and Lily, a young American couple working as English teachers in Tokyo, who never manage to integrate into Japanese society fully. Rounding out the strip's ensemble cast is the three-generational Koyama family, with whom Larry and Lily share friendship and regular misunderstanding. There is plenty of miscommunication between the Japanese characters as well. For a unique perspective on Japan from a Western artist, the 300+ strips in this Japanese comic anthology will both make you laugh and make you think. Author: Roger Dahl. Paperback; 168 pages.
