Though Ichiro is not banned (to my knowledge), I wanted to share this review for three reasons. 1) Ichiro has a similar vibe to such banned graphic novel classics as Persepolis and Maus, so I thought fans of those may be interested in picking it up. 2) Ichiro is an eerie yet perfect book to compliment Tiger Eyes as they both feature relatives taking distraught children to museums showcasing the atomic bomb, one in Los Alamos, one in Japan. Seeing Davey and Ichiro’s parallel but similar reactions is a truly thought-provoking experience. 3) Reviews By Lantern’s Light is an awesome blog and you should totally check it out.
It’s a little recognized fact that whatever madness you find through the looking glass is bound to be a reflection of yourself. It’s one that young Ichiro discovers in more ways than one over the course of this gorgeous, Eisner-nominated, original graphic novel by writer/artist Ryan Inzana.
