    One thought on “Anywhere But Here

    1. Jef

      This is a serial comic strip by one of the legends of comics in Japan - Tori Miki. The visual style is sparse but perfectly suited to the content. The content tends towards the surreal and the humor is extremely Japanese in the sense that it is fundamentally connected by subtle or strong references to Japanese pop and cultural history (expect to not get all the jokes unless you're a native). However anyone with an open brain and who is willing to drink this book in, like the fine wine that it is [...]

    2. Tim

      This is probably the third time I have gone through this book. Each page is a (usually) nine panel comic based off of visual gags. Some of the comics are the most brilliant, hilarious things I have ever seen, some of them make no sense whatsoever, and many are a little bit of both.

    3. Jeff Lewonczyk

      Pure dada surrealism, Japanese-style. Nine silent panels per page, and it's up to you to make any sense out of them. Clean lines, clear thinking, aimed at obscure ends. I was in heaven on every page.

    4. Nick DeMarco

      I was raised on the far side, and it's always had a big influence on me, but this has replaced it as my favorite comic strip of all time. Surreal, moving & confounding, while staying subtle and effortless. It's also I think the best example of the same kind of enthusiastic malaise that I personally try to cultivate.

    5. Peacegal

      3.5 stars. This comic relies on bizarre visual gags. A few of the comics seem to relate experiences that are unique to Japanese culture.
