TSUNAMI! True Travel Tales of South East Asia
by Justin Hall
All Thumbs Press

Review by Tom Good

"There was nothing except the running . . . and the screaming, which at first I didn't even realize was coming from my own mouth. We raced the wave to the high ground, pulling along with us a fat, asthmatic tourist with her face clenched in terror."

Like Baraka And Black Magic In Morocco, this is a travel comic. All of the stories in it happened to the author except for the title story about the tsunami in Thailand, which was told to him by Louisa Hirst. About six pages of prose and fourteen pages of comics make this a fairly thin volume, but Hall includes observations about everything from Buddhism to motorcycles to water-buffalo-milk yoghurt, so the $3 price seems very reasonable.

Saiyuki Reload Gunlock, Vol 1. (DVD)
Geneon

Review by Tom Good

Though it is a Volume 1, this series is a sequel to the earlier series Saiyuki Reload. It is loosely based on the Chinese classic story The Journey to the West (also known as Monkey). The original story concerns a monk who journeys from China to India to retrieve Buddhist scriptures, and it has provided inspiration for many anime and manga including Dragonball. In this version the monk carries a gun, smokes cigarettes, and sometimes drives a car. [more]
