32 Down, 20 To Go "Good-Bye" (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

God-Bye is the third collection of Yoshihiro Tatsumi comics in Drawn & Quarterly's series of his works. Adrian Tomine's introduction sets these comics off perfectly. The works come from 1971 & 1972, when Tatsumi was transitioning from drawing "rental comics" and moving into magazine placements.

From Hiroshima's aftermath to bizarre sex fetishes to incest, these comics are the dtuff of nightmares, but Tatsumi infuses his characters with a humanity that makes these stories as compelling as they are shocking.
