Haunting and disturbing, this novel explores the darker side of everyday people living and working in a large Japanese city. It seems that Yoshihiro Tatsumi is an older Japanese version of Adrian Tomine.

A great graphic novel of short tales. Vibrant tales and great images. Worth a read along with all of Tatsumi's work.

Thirty years before the advent of the literary graphic novel movement in the United States, Yoshihiro Tatsumi created a library of comics that draws parallels to modern prose fiction and today’s alternative comics. The stories collected in The Push Man are simultaneously haunting, disturbing, and darkly humorous. A lone man travels the country, projecting pornographic films for private individuals while attempting to maintain a normal home life. The lives of two men become intertwined when one hires the other to observe his sexual escapades through a telescope. An auto mechanic’s obsession with a female TV personality turns fatal after a chance meeting between the two.
