a volume of collected works produced in '70. Herein the stories seem to tend towards the barriers between people. The art stylings feel less cared for than the '69 works, but not quite to the at first off-putting, but ultimately compelling 71/2 works. Tatsumi's work is easy to get sucked into, read an entire volume in a day. Highly recommended to force yourself to put the book down after a couple stories and come back another day. Even w/ the volumes themselves, space it out. The proximity of readings diminishes each a bit, but certainly doesn't come close to destroying the experience. However, exercising some control and allowing for breathing room will heighten the readings.
