The Push Man and other stories
Yoshihiro Tatsumi
Drawn & Quarterly
First published in Japan nearly 40 years ago, the short stories in The Push Man are Tatsumi's examinations of the dark, repressed natures of modern man. Disturbing yet very beautiful, these vignettes of late 1960s Japan have more in common with the modern alternative comics of Daniel Clowes or Adrian Tomine (who edited, designed, lettered and provided the introduction to this volume) than those of popular manga.
