Page 45 Review by Jonathan

Are you sitting comfortably? Good, then I'll let the publisher begin to tell us all about…

"An incredible collection of tales from all over Asia, retold as stunning comics by some of the best independent artists the internet has to offer.

Vengeful spirits, flying ogres, trickster tigers, and much more. Featuring the work of Gene Luen Yang, Nick Dragotta, Blue Delliquanti, Carla Speed McNeil, Nina Matsumoto, and many more, this is one lively collection of Asian folktales, reimagined and retold in comics!"

The second volume in the "Cautionary Fables & Fairytales Book" series after THE GIRL WHO MARRIED A SKULL AND OTHER AFRICAN STORIES, this time around this sees us relocate geographically to Asia…

As before there may be the odd tale, or variation thereof, that seems familiar but most of these tales were certainly completely new to me.

Told in black and white, by a whole host of creators, if you fancy finding out a little more about Asian folklore then this may be for you. There's twenty one tales to be told, all short and sweet though a fair few feature a sticky end…

Whilst it's no FABLE COMICS by any means, it is certainly a most enjoyable way to acquire some cultural knowledge that's probably safer than the terrifying prospect of being babysat and taught some learnin' old school style by Shigeru Mizuki's NONNONBA.
