THE PUSH MAN reviewed by PopMatters

“THE PUSH MAN reviewed by PopMatters” / Pop Matters / Tim O'Neil / October 19, 2005

The Push Man is the first in a proposed series of chronological translations of Tatsumi's material. While nowhere near complete -- according to Tomine, Tatsumi was far too prolific for a complete collection to be feasible in America -- these highlights cannot help but imply the presence of a massive, profoundly important body of work as yet unseen by Western eyes. It is my deepest hopes that sales of The Push Man warrant further volumes, because Yoshihiro Tatsumi has earned his place in the as yet very small pantheon of translated Japanese cartoonists whose work demands our unequivocal attention.
