Summary

Muy lejos, más allá de las montañas de palabras, alejados de los países de las vocales y las consonantes, viven los textos simulados. Viven aislados en casas de letras, en la costa de la semántica, un gran océano de lenguas. Un riachuelo llamado Pons fluye por su pueblo y los abastece con las normas necesarias. Hablamos de un país paraisomático en el que a uno le caen pedazos de frases asadas en la boca. Ni siquiera los todopoderosos signos de puntuación dominan a los textos simulados; una vida, se puede decir, poco ortográfica. Pero un buen día, una pequeña línea de texto simulado, llamada Lorem Ipsum, decidió aventurarse y salir al vasto mundo de la gramática. El gran Oxmox le desanconsejó hacerlo, ya que esas tierras estaban llenas de comas malvadas, signos de interrogación salvajes y puntos y coma traicioneros, pero el texto simulado no se dejó atemorizar. Empacó sus siete versales, enfundó su inicial en el cinturón y se puso en camino. Cuando ya había escalado las primeras colinas de las montañas cursivas, se dio media vuelta para dirigir su mirada por última vez, hacia su ciudad natal Letralandia, el encabezamiento del pueblo Alfabeto y el subtítulo de su

    The humorous cross-cultural observations in this graphic novel, drawn from a long-running comic in The Japan Times, will delight visitors to Japan and armchair travelers alike. Roger Dahl's Comic Japan is a collection of the best of the Zero Gravity cartoon strip, a favorite feature of Japan's leading English-language daily newspaper The Japan Times, since 1991. In this anthology, it is made available in book form for the first time. The Japan comic strip stars Larry and Lily, a young American couple working as English teachers in Tokyo, who never manage to integrate into Japanese society fully. Rounding out the strip's ensemble cast is the three-generational Koyama family, with whom Larry and Lily share friendship and regular misunderstanding. There is plenty of miscommunication between the Japanese characters as well. Zero Gravity takes a whimsical approach to the meeting of cultures. The primary focus is on the humorous misunderstandings between East and West, but nearly as often it explores the quirky dynamics of changing relationships between generations and subgroups within Japan. Though the strip is undoubtedly an exploration of colliding cultures, it is primarily a story about characters who have a good deal of affection for one another. This anthology contains eight chapters covering various aspects of Larry and Lily's life in Japan. Each chapter includes 16-20 pages and 32-40 cartoon strips with two strips to each page and opens with a brief introduction to the theme of the chapter. A 3-page illustrated foreword to the book introduces Roger Dahl, his career and his inspiration for Zero Gravity. For a unique perspective on Japan from a Western artist, the 300+ strips in this Japanese comic anthology will both make you laugh and make you think.
