Hutchings' Walking to Japan was the standout story in last year's Aftershock benefit comics anthology for victims of the Tohoku Earthquake. This newsprint edition is the same story, larger and alone, and it's giving me the chance to appreciate what a masterful short work it is. An eloquent exercise in proportion and storytelling, there's lots of great fantastical tricks at play here wrapped up in a nice allusion to classic Japanese monster movies and it's technically smooth and fun, pairing solid drawing chops with enough interesting experimentation to keep you engaged. -EF
