    Loved this surreal jaunt through the life of a JBM! Don't look for deep continuity - just go where it takes you and soon you will be swept away into a dreamscape.

    Pomysł na ten komiks jest fantastyczny i banalnie prosty. Chodziło o to, by pozbyć się oczekiwań, schematów i tworzenia ze z góry narzuconym scenariuszem, a zamiast tego kreować historię w trakcie samego rysowania. Powrót do tworzenia takiego, jak robią to dzieci - bez planów i rozkmin, czysta improwizacja i wariactwo. Domingo wypuścił bohatera w świat po zakończeniu pracy i czytelnik nie jest w stanie przewidzieć co mu się zaraz przydarzy. Autor świetnie gra oklepanymi motywami i schematami.

Horror, superhero, wątek korporacji jako złowrogiej sekty, która zmienia pracowników w bezmyślne zombiaki - to tylko niektóre konteksty, w jakie uwikłany jest japoński pracownik biurowy. Komiks niemy, ale łatwo nie jest. Liczy się spostrzegawczość, dokładna analiza każdego kadru, by nie umknęło nic ważnego, co może rzutować na dalszy bieg wydarzeń. Rzecz świetna, choć w pewnym momencie wdziera się lekkie znużenie, więc myślę, że odjęcie około 20 stron podziałałoby na korzyść.

    A Japanese businessman leaves work for the day and on his way home encounters a series of bizarre people and situations, and goes on a comical life-changing journey beyond the boundaries of reality. Jose Domingo’s comic is completely silent (no words), told in a four panel grid on oversized paper.

Jose Domingo’s comic is completely silent (no words), told in a four panel grid on oversized paper. It’s an interestingly presented book with the perspective in each panel slightly slanted and coupled with the cartoonish way Domingo draws the figures, makes it look like I’m reading an early 90s SNES game – not a bad thing in itself. But as well drawn as it is, it gets a bit tedious to “read” after a while. There’s no real story - the Japanese businessman continues on his way no matter what crazy thing happens until the end. Some sequences are clever like when he dies halfway through, leading to Domingo appearing in the comic, pleading with Satan to bring his character back as he foolishly killed him off too early, which the Devil does (apparently all cartoonists work in hell!). Plus I don’t think I’ve ever read a book where the main character becomes chewing gum by the end. I really wanted to like this as these kind of quirky, indie comics are right up my alley but I kept putting this one down as it just didn’t hold my attention for long. Imaginative and dream-like in approach but without any real narrative to involve the reader, Adventures of a Japanese Business Man somehow makes the surreal and zany boring to read.

    The book Adventures of a Japanese Business Man is peculiar at best, to an outside audience it truly does paint a more than chaotic outlook on the life of the protagonist.

It was made to reflect a stereotype about Japanese business men being easy going and dealing with whatever happens to them. The book did reflect this quite well, especially showing the protagonist simply dealing with each task and even its consequences at the end of it all (when he returns home). This was a stereotype I was unaware of which likely contributed to my confusion at the books purpose, but all in all it did a more than satisfactory exaggeration of it.

    cómic sin texto (salvo prólogos y agradecimientos) muy imaginativo e impredecible, tiene momentos muy divertidos y caóticos... se acaba en un ratito muy corto, pero la gracia precisamente está en que le puedes echar un vistazo de tanto en tanto y como cada página tiene un montón de detalles siempre encontrarás algo nuevo.

Throughout this book it follows a man who had seemed to be living a normal everyday life, but it all went downhill from there. He ran into everything from literal abduction, to getting probed by aliens. As I went along through this book it became more and more confusing, and I definitely feel there is more of a true meaning behind this book.

    This is an amazing work of art. I think you read it in the traditional western way -- upper left to right, lower left to right. There a few "words" that are more like sounds a handful of times but otherwise this is just visuals that follow a gray haired cube-shaped man for a day, a lifetime, perhaps multiple lifetimes or at least 40 weeks, it isn't completely clear.

I think you read it in the traditional western way -- upper left to right, lower left to right. There a few "words" that are more like sounds a handful of times but otherwise this is just visuals that follow a gray haired cube-shaped man for a day, a lifetime, perhaps multiple lifetimes or at least 40 weeks, it isn't completely clear. Almost anything you might imagine that couldn't happen to you on a walk home from work happens to this man. Most of the pages contain four panels but some are a single image or an image spread out over two pages. I read it through rather quickly the first time to just try and craft a story as I read. That story was some wild ride into other dimensions and the depths of the earth and off planet, too. Once i did that I went back and lingered a bit longer, seeing the tiny details that José Domingo has put into each drawing. While our gray haired man sort of ends his story (I'll not spoil it for you with more details) another longer haired man who does not look like a business man get eight panels of his own. Is that a start of another book, Mr. Domingo?

    This book is amazing! I love the artwork, sort of a cross between Mark Beyer and Kaz. The story is simple: a Japanese businessman has adventures on his way home from work. These involve shootouts and aliens and ghosts and yetis and serial killers and ... Part of the fun is studying the detail in each panel. Are those brains with arms and legs?! Lovely book!

    Muy divertido y muy rápido... Se nota que el autor viene del mundo de la animación ya que es prácticamente ver un cortometraje animado y es algo que no termina de hacerme tilín, porque la sensación es esa.

    Cando eras pequeno e os cómics servíanche para ti flipalo a maiores, imaxinando como seguirías ti a historia que estabas lendo a tempo real ... Ás veces pareime con este, intentei imaxinar como me gustaría que seguise e sempre me superou o real, Don Domingo coñéceme coma se me parira.

There is no or very little text to speak of, meaning the narrative is driven by the reader's mind, guided by the illustrations provided. José Domingo is the penciler for the trade paperback. Since he was the only penciler, the artistic flow of the trade paperback flowed exceptionally well. For the most part, I rather enjoyed his penciling style, which is psychedelic, surreal, zany, and has a dream-like quality to it. All in all, Adventures of a Japanese Business Man is a rather well constructed graphic novel about a Japanese businessman and his zany, surreal adventure home.

    Una historia gráfica cargada de humor, referencias a la cultura pop, violencia y sucesos increíbles. Cuando parece que ya sucedió lo más descabellado, el hilo argumental se retuerce para convertir la aventura en todavía algo más inesperado y loco. Me gustó que hay una analogía con la vida misma por lo alucinante que puede ser la cotidianidad, si estás dispuesto a verla.

    Dilbert meets the carnivalesque or "a funny thing happened on the way home" type of narrative. Jose Domingo created/illustrated this silent graphic novel that is funny, horrific, but always colorful and entertaining!

    Demasiado irreverente y en partes cómico, en las secuencias se siente repetitivo y un poco caótico.

Para além do exemplo paradigmático de "Scott Pilgrim" temos agora este "Aventuras de un oficinista japonés", de José Domingo, inspirado, porventura, nos role-playing games japoneses dos anos 90. Esta bd tem o mesmo tipo de estética e energia que caracteriza esses jogos, para além das suas personagens caricatas e um sentido de humor muito peculiar. A história narra a saída do trabalho de um salaryman que no caminho para casa vê-se envolvido em situações cada vez mais absurdas e incríveis numa crescente de loucura e imaginação. Um dos episódios mais inusitados é aquele no qual o próprio autor tem que negociar, no seu inferno pessoal (Que outros autores inclui Domingo neste inferno?), com o seu demónio para que este ressuscite o protagonista de forma a poder concluir a sua história. O desenho simples super deformed e as cores vibrantes distraem-nos da capacidade que Domingo tem de nos surpreender com pequenos sub-enredos à moda de Mortadello y Filémon de Ibañez ou a chicken fat de Elder na MAD que têm repercussões imediatas, de vinheta para vinheta, ou a médio e longo prazo. Estes pequenos brindes ajudam à longevidade de uma obra de leitura rápida. Resumindo, "Aventuras" é uma bd engraçada e "muito bd" na sua forma de estar, mesmo indo beber a outras fontes como os videojogos, e que já atraiu a atenção da editora Nobrow que acabou de o publicar no Reino Unido.

At one point the author inserts himself into the process, begging the demons that have taken the businessman’s life, to return him so that he can continue the comic. Definitely weird, sometimes gruesome, but also funny and addictive.

    Not bad... It's like a parody of the typical seinen manga, or so they say. Although to me it looked more like the parody of a japanese video-game. It looks like the protagonist can't help but to go straight, no matter what happens. I did not enjoy it overall, there were some funny frames but overall it was a bit... maybe... I simply didn't like the aesthetics.

    When I first saw this book, it seemed that it had a lot of potential. I really tried hard to like it but just didn't "get it". It does reward re-reading and a careful study of the imagery, but not enough.
