“Red Colored Elegy” Review in The Believer


The new issue of The Believer has my short review of Seiichi Hayashi’s “Red Colored Elegy,” an amazing comic first serialized in Japan in 1970-71, and receiving its first english translation late last year. Formally experimental and emotionally wise, it’s easily one of the best comics I’ve read in the last few years.

The first two paragraphs of the review are posted online – for the whole thing you need to hit the magazine stands.
