Barefoot Gen review

Greg McElhatton over at Read About Comics writes about the first volume of Keiji Nakazawa’s autobiographical account of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Barefoot Gen. This one has been on my list of things to read for some time now.

For a different angle, head over to Paul Gravett’s site to read his article on Barefoot Gen.

I do agree with Greg though, using comic sans does detract from it somewhat.
