really liked it

This is such an amazing story, a journey through comics, about comics, and in comics. It tells the life story of Yoshihiro Tatsumi (referred to throughout as Hiroshi) and how he among others helped to take Japanese comics from 4 panel greeting card gags to actual stories, and a serious form of art. His story combines both his saga, and the development of Japanese comics into one interesting volume. It's kinda big and hard to carry around, but if you have the time, I highly recommend it.
