Review: Tsunami!

Artist(s): Justin Hall.

Justin Hall is back for another mini-comic in his series of True Travel Tales, where he draws true-life stories travellers have told him, as well as his own stories, some of which have a gay theme.
In Tsunami, we get the story of a woman who was in Thailand when the recent earthquakes created a tsunami and killed so many people, an illustrated text where Hall recounts highlights from his 2004/2005 East Asia journey, a short encounter in Myanmar between him and an American who’s smuggled pot in a jar of peanut butter, and finally a quiet moment where Hall draws a Cambodian moto-taxi man.
As usual, the tales Justin Hall illustrates range from very serious to silly and sweet, with his down-to-earth art focusing on people’s faces and local details. Although there’s no gay element in this 20-page collection, it’s certainly worth the few dollars Hall is asking for it on his website.
