Barefoot Gen Volume 01 English Book Pdf

Some of the machine excerpts from the book

Gen haunts me. The first time I read it was in the late 1970s, shortly after I’d begun working on Maus, my own extended comic book chronicle of the twentieth century’s other central cataclysm. I had the flu at the time and read it while high on fever. Gen burned its way into my heated brain with all the intensity of a fever-dream. I’ve found myself remembering images and events from the Gen books with a clarity that made them seem like memories from my own life, rather than Nakazawa’s. I will never forget the people dragging their own melted skin as they walk through the ruins of Hiroshima, the panic-stricken horse on fire galloping through the city, the maggots crawling out of the sores of a young girl’s ruined face. Gen deals with the trauma of the atom bomb without flinching.
