There is an embarrassment of riches in the Taniguchi department this month as we have – unbelievably – two new (to American readers) works. A Distant Neighborhood is a two volume work, and we are told that we won't have long to wait for the conclusion. It is a work of the interior, a what-if sort of tale. Specifically, it graphically asks the question: what if you could go back and relive the critical years of your adolescence over again, while still retaining your adult memories? We don't have anything further to say about this one right now (but we will!) other than, "Hey, it's Taniguchi. What more do you need to know?" Well then, how about checking out this brief preview (look to the left hand side of the page and click on the thumbnails of the cover image for this book [and the next] to get to the preview and then click on the thumbnails of the pages for full size images).
