Tanaka, Masashi
Talk about a graphic novel. In fact it is all graphics. Not a single word is used to tell the tale of GON (one tough little dinosaur), in any of the seven volumes in the series. This is a manga style graphic novel that reads from back to front and right to left. It is also very manga in the bold illustrations and it does not shy away from violent content. GON is often a very aggressive and angry little dinosaur, so don't think that just because there are no words and the story is of a little baby dinosaur that this is a sweet story, suitable for early graphic novel experimenting. It isn't. But for those who have been reading manga for some time, it sure is a wild ride.
