Details

BAREFOOT GEN is the powerful, graphic story of the bombing of Hiroshima, seen through the eyes of a young boy growing up in a Japanese anti-militarist family.

Written and illustrated by one of Japan's foremost illustrators - himself a survivor of the bombing - the BAREFOOT GEN series is a gripping study of the possibilities for humane and ethical relations even in the midst of war, violence, and degradation.

BAREFOOT GEN: LIFE AFTER THE BOMB picks up the story with Gen, his mother and his baby brother searching for a place to lay their heads in the bomb's aftermath. Facing rejection, hunger, and humiliation, they come to realize that they still have - and can share - three crucial possessions: their self-respect, their hope, and their inner strength.

'Nakazawa, I'm sure, will be considered one of the great comic artists of this century, because he tells the truth in a plain straightforward way, filled with real human feelings.'
-R. Crumb
