There Goes Tokyo Presents #1 – Love The Monsters
I love this comic. Not because it's startling original, or because it looks shiny and fantastic – if I tell you it's about a shark researcher trying to come to terms with the after effects of a shark attack, you can probably guess the rest. (Although on second thoughts, while it's a regular theme for TV drama, it is pretty off-the-wall for a comic). I don't love it for shallow reasons like that. I love it because everything about it is right. The script is wqell-paced, and quite subtle, and doesn't have a snappy resolution. The dialogue establishes character quickly, reads well and never seems forced. The art is confident, clear and expressive. More please.
