Dream Fossil review Á 104 Later animated works are also readily apparent Yet the flights of fancy are anchored by knowing empathetic portrayals of the very human nature of each stor. this was really neat to read after growing up with Kon s films Paprika Perfect Blue Tokyo Godfathers and my favorite Millennium Actress some of these short stories really could have been something a film even I think the best thing about Dream Fossil is that each of these stories is distinctly Japanesewhich I know probably sounds odd considering a Japanese person drewwrote Dream Fossil however it s the mannerisms of Kon s characters the settings and topics that make life in Japan nearly palpable other manga rely on slap stick comedy glossy art or action packed fight scenes to tell a story but Kon is able to captivate with authentic simplicity such a shame he passed away in 2010 also I just now discovered that Kon was an artist on Akira it all makes sense now

Dream Fossil review Á 104 Dream Fossil is a collection of 15 short stories by the late Satoshi Kon These stories serialized in a variety of magazines in the 1980's give a rare glimps. I wanted to like this I really did I love Satoshi Kon and some of his manga work such as Tropic of the Sea are legitimately wonderful But Dream Fossil is some of his earliest work from the 80s before he really matured as a storyteller The art is satisfactory and serviceable with some legitimately great moments but the storytelling is rushed and page layouts are cramped It s as though he s trying to cram as much as humanly possible into these short stories instead of dialing them back somewhat and letting them breatheIt doesn t help that the translation and lettering are legitimately awful One of the points of translating work from other languages is the localization bringing it into a meter and idiom that feels right for it s target audience The translation here feels like a word for exact word process that leaves everything feeling awkward and stilted The lettering doesn t help with this it fills the word balloons awkwardly it s badly laid out and while it may not be Comic Sans it s definitely in the same font family Look at how Dark Horse or Viz handle the lettering for their translated manga it works far FAR better Unless you re an absolute Satoshi Kon completest I wouldn t recommend this

While there s no doubt Kon succeeded as a visual artist and a filmmaker it s clear that seuential art wasn t suited for him Kon s style of storytelling definitely has a film aesthetic in mind in terms of pacing and staging and while his art is phenomenal it really doesn t blend well with comics
