Baka Geta

via Blackguard on 4/18/10
[28pages, 7.5cm x 14cm, $1.00, by Onsmith, available from www.opticalsloth.com ]
In 2004, Onsmith took a a trip to Japan (his first trip outside the US) with his girlfriend Ryoko Oguchi (who also drew some stuff in here). This little comic contains observations and highlights from that trip, including discovering comics as soon as he arrived at the airport, drawings of *kawaii* Japanese mascots (like beer-chan, taco-kun, and hoto-dogu). This is really cute, and for anybody who has been to Japan, or dreams of going, recommended.
Also, why not check out Onsmith's blog.
