Zenbu toku ni atta (Byu’s Short Stories: All So Far Away)

Self-published comic

Byu [Japan]


A collection of six short stories, ranging from “A Country Called America,” a one-shot manga that reads like a journal of a trip to a fictitious America, to “Long Visit,” which follows the inner changes undergone by J, a man who lives a quiet life in an isolated environment, when a mysterious woman N suddenly appears. Drawn with simple lines, these unique works leave themselves open to each reader’s interpretation.
