    Review personal story explaining why I loved this book so much.Punk rock was probably my first Dharma I know that sounds weird, but it was the first thing that helped me learn that the world is not what we think it is, that we have to wake up and pay attention if we are ever to understand the nature of reality It certainly helped that I was an angry, lonely, alienated teenager when I discovered that the Clash, Black Flag and other bands

    The art is marvellous the only thing better is the narrative And it s weird, because for a story about anarchist terrorists blowing up a multi national fast food restaurant chain while pursued by murderous skinheads, it s a small, quiet, domestic narrative about mate ship, and the meaning of life, and making families you choose yourself Although it would technically fail the Bechdel test, the female characters are wonderful vivid and unsex

    A great story representative of New Zealand where it was written You can feel a connection with the characters as though they are real people.

    This has to be one of my favorite books of the year, so far Andy Brown, the publisher of Conundrum, told me that they were describing this as New Zealand Love s answer to Love Rockets I had thought of that as I was reading the book, originally, but now it makes perfect sense to me And it isn t just the punk connection This is a complex and sophisticated story, with Sang manipulating narrative time in fascinating ways I must reread this again so

    3.5 Stars I could relate to this as it concentrates on a music scene which I was very much into at the exact time this was set, even if I did experience it on the other side of the world This has echoes of Romper Stomper and Craig Marriner s Stonedogs There are also elements of many other coming of age graphic depictions from the likes of Charles Burns, Daniel Clowes etc, but this has a doom laden edge which hovers over the action like a morose cloud.

    Spectacular work from a New Zealand creator Ant Sang collecting an 8 issue series from 2001 2003 If all New Zealand comics creators are as good as Ant Sang and Dylan Horrocks, I need to move to New Zealand.

    This is the story of Chopstick a young asian punk in Auckland NZ in the eighties It follows a dramatic night on the streets with punks, skinheads, goths and direct action activists The art is beautiful, inky and poignant Sometimes the women look too old cos of the style and sometimes the characters look too alike The movement and scenery and clothing is really well done though I thought the characters were lacking, none of them were really fleshed out and m

    I really loved this and can see why it was so popular, the story is wild and fun and the philosophical discussions were really cool and interesting I just wish the characters were easier to distinguish the brush and ink style made for beautiful artworks but I think also contributed to all of the characters having v similar faces as well as all being punks, so dressed v alike and it made it hard to follow the story sometimes esp in the flashbacks Overall tho, i

    Intense, emotional and surprisingly deep The story shows many familiar Auckland locations A weird mix of Anarchy, rebellion, sensitivity, and buddhism All of them topics that are top of my mind recently Fit my mindset like a glove.Great expressionist graphic novel with lots of heart and depth to it.
