    Trippy yet highly structured, accepting yet alienating weird stuff There is not much of a plot, but the vaguely futuristic, unfamiliar, warped, shrill, distorted tone of World Map Room definitely did something to my brain Recommended to fans of experimental comics

    Yuichi Yokoyama s World Map Room is a droll, minimalist satire of manga Japanese comic books which focuses on three geometrically stylish young punks who arrive in a big, geometrically stylish city and proceed to make their way to a big, indoor, geometrically stylish garden, where they are expected for a an important meeting whose import is never revealed Along the way, our three monotone heroes discuss the frequency of low flying airplanes, the unfriendliness of the city s residents, flip th Yuichi Yokoyama s World Map Room is a droll, minimalist satire of manga Japanese comic books which focuses on three geometrically stylish young punks who arrive in a big, geometrically stylish city and proceed to make their way to a big, indoor, geometrically stylish garden, where they are expected for a an important meeting whose import is never revealed Along the way, our three monotone heroes discuss the frequency of low flying airplanes, the unfriendliness of the city s residents, flip through a few uninteresting books, don t mind having an afternoon drink, ride on a boat, watch a bunch of cars come out of a factory, and gather around an artificial lake to look at a ship that is sunk at its bottom Nearly every page is littered with jagged onomatopoeic Japanese characters staples of comic books you k...

    The jacket blurb for this is something like Guys come to a city They watch planes taking off and cross a river Then they visit the World Map Room and get taken on a tour of a garden This is all pretty accurate to the actual plot here, though it s t...

    The least impressive of Yokoyama s books, but still full of visionary marvels that only he could conjure The sections with the airplanes and the books in the World Map Room library, in particular Since Picturebox is now defunct, I worry this will be the last of Yokoyama s titles we ll see for a long...

    Minimalist in story, dialogue and visuals, this is a deliberately flat story that emphasizes the drawing of the city and geometrical shapes, all else being muted The characters are vaguely futuristic and also bored with all they s...

    Yokoyama has a wonderful, unique style of depicting the motion of transportation World Map Room is not as strong as his other work, primarily due to the text Maybe something has been lost in translating from Japan...

    A trio of grim, nameless men enter an unnamed, noisy metropolis, intent on a mission whose purpose is never stated Flat, simple geometric figures and backgrounds, often shown in extreme close up, add to the claustrophobia and disorientation of this work, the first installment of four gr...

    As other reviewers have noted, not Yokoyama s strongest work Still enjoyable, though, and I particularly like the sequence of World Map Room books.
