Kyo wo aruku (Daily Walking)
IGARASHI Mikio [Japan]
A philosophical essay comic about the author who takes a daily walk through the same route no matter if it’s sunny, raining, snowing or even the day after mother’s death. Though he passes by the same people and sees the same dog in the walk, what he’s thinking is different each time. New discoveries nascent in our daily lives are depicted with humor under the theme of “comtemplation and walking everyday”.
