Johnny Hiro: The Skills to Pay the Bills

We rated this book:

$17.99

Johnny Hiro is back and is better than ever in this, the second volume of the popular comic book series. Fred Chao has won multiple awards for his Half Asian, All Hero accidental adventurer. Meet Johnny, a sushi sous chef living day-to-day in New York City. Mind you, day-to-day is fighting giant gorillas and sabotaging caterers. Not to be outdone, this volume has more heart as the book is fairly well balanced with action and peace.

In Fred Chao’s second volume you can expect to find some of the same off-the-wall humor and non-stop action like the first book. What makes this book and the next so different is the sentimental attachment it tries to bring to all the characters. It dips into the background stories for the side characters like Shinto Pete and Mr. Masago, and even the city of New York itself. Both Johnny and the main cast feel a bit over exposed at this point, but these little side adventures and flashbacks make for a surprising read. Each page is wonderfully drawn and planed out. Johnny Hiro is quickly becoming a must-have for any comic fan.
