    DescriptionDrawn in 1971 and 1972, these stories expand Yoshihiro Tatsumi's prolific artist's vocabulary for characters contextualized by themes of depravity and disorientation in twentieth-century Japan. Some of the tales focus on the devastation the country felt as a result of World War II: in one story a man devotes twenty years to preserving the memory of those killed at Hiroshima, only to discover a horrible misconception at the heart of his tribute. Yet, while American influence does play a role in the disturbing and bizarre stories contained within this volume, as always it is Tatsumi's characters that bear his hallmark, muddling through isolated despair and fleeting pleasure to live out their darkly nuanced lives.

    Review quote
    Praise for Yoshihiro Tatsumi: “"Abandon the Old in Tokyo" is a revealing time capsule and a strangely moving portrait of survival in a land where everything is changing.” —"Time " “These stories . . . reveal an artist who was making comics that weren’t just adult, but truly mature.” —"The Village Voice "
