“MIAMI HERALD on TATSUMI'S PUSH MAN” / The Miami Herald / The Miami Herald Staff / October 31, 2005

Collecting some of the stories by the godfather of Japanese alternative comics Tatsumi, The Push Man brings out the artist's knack for such off-kilter stories as the one about a man so driven to the brink that he allows his house and wife to burn in a fire. Or a programmed killer who lives a perfect suburban life. The characters seem similar, but with good reason: Tatsumi makes it so any of his characters could be any of the others, crafting a powerful and still-potent commentary on the social and sexual roles of Japanese society.
