Volume one tells the story of the Nakazawa's in Hiroshima from April of 1945 until a few hours after the bomb dropped on August 6, 1945. Volume two covers the first few days after the bombing - it's terrible.

Volume one tells the story of the Nakazawa's in Hiroshima from April of 1945 until a few hours after the bomb dropped on August 6, 1945. People's skin and faces are melting, corpses bellies burst open with gas, the city reeks terrible and very few people want to help each other (which adds to the misery). Book 3 addresses the next several days after that.

Barefoot Gen, Volume Two book. Barefoot Gen vol. 2 exceeds its amazing predecessor. This Japanese graphic novel focuses upon a WWII-era Hiroshima family's devastation after the explosion of the atomic bomb. Nakazawa's illustrations are done in the very cartoony, old-school anime style. That's what makes it even more jarring to see the characters enduring unspeakable suffering. Don't be fooled by the cutsey character design and think you're in for an easy read.

Art Spiegelman's sinister and witty black-and-white drawings give charged new life to Joseph Moncure March's Wild Party, a lost classic from 1928. The inventive and varied page designs offer perfect counterpoint to the staccato tempo of this hard-boiled j. Read Yourself Raw. by Art Spiegelman · Françoise Mouly.

Barefoot Gen: The Day After, the second book in the Barefoot Gen series, picks up right where its predecessor left off. Nakazawa left many of the horrors of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima for this second volume. Though there are many journeys and themes in this volume, it seemed more cohesive than Volume 1. The severity of the situation has set in for both the reader and Gen, and this gives significance to every event, leaving little room for comic mischief. Though the two are very similar in style and story, I'd say The Day After is a slight improvement on the previous volume.

Volume two tells the story of the day after the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima .

Volume two tells the story of the day after the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, as seen through the eyes of seven-year-old Gen Nakaoka. Gen, his mother and his newborn sister face the horrors of the day after the bomb. This moving saga can be compared in scope and intensity to Art Spiegelman's Maus.

Volume two tells the story of the day after the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, as seen through the eyes . Cartoonist Keiji Nakazawa was seven years old and living in Hiroshima in the early days of 1945 when the city was destroyed by an atomic bomb dropped by the USA. Starting a few months before that event, this four-volume saga shows life in Japan after years of war and privations.

The Barefoot Gen series of 10 graphic novels tells the story of the World War II atomic bombing of Hiroshima Japan through the eyes of a young boy Gen Nakaoka who relates the events lived through by the author Keiji Nakazawa. Book 7, Bones Into Dust takes place more than three years after the war has officially ended. Gen's father, sister and brother were killed during the blast, and his mother now suffers from radiation sickness. Gen's older brother Koji has left to work in a coal mine to earn money for the family, leaving Gen and his younger brother Akira to care for their sick mother and find food and medical care. Gen has befriended an older man and a group of street orphans who develop scheme after scheme to find food, raise money, or steal what they need. The old man has written a novel called The End of Summer about the atomic bomb and its effects on Hiroshima that he wants to have published before he dies of radiation sickness.
The book opens with the orphans devising a plan to get the book published. When all the regular publishers have turned them down because they fear reprisal from the Americans, Ryuta, one of the orphans, suggests asking the prison print shop to print the books. All they need to do is find the money to buy the paper for the printing. Finding the money is a challenge that they solve. Once they have the book published and are distributing it, they are picked up by the local police and taken to a U.S. military base for interrogation.
Meanwhile Gen's mother continues to decline from her bomb-induced radiation sickness, and Gen's older brother Koji, now a depressed alcoholic, returns from the mines. The last section of the book reunites the family as the boys try to make Gen's mother happy in her last days. The subtitle Bones Into Dust refers to the cremation remains of Gen's mother as the family deals with yet another loss.

The Barefoot Gen series of 10 graphic novels tells the story of the World War II atomic bombing of Hiroshima Japan through the eyes of a young boy Gen Nakaoka who relates the events lived through by the author Keiji Nakazawa. Gen's father, sister and brother were killed during the blast; his mother died several years later from radiation sickness. Gen is in Middle School and living with his older brother Koji and his younger brother Akira in the shack his family built from the ruins of the blast.

Book 8, Merchants of Death begins in June of 1950 with the beginning of the Korean War. Hiroshima has been rebuilding from the ruins of the blast and the war brings business to local merchants willing to supply materials for the war. With the war comes a crackdown on Communists and their sympathizers. Many in Hiroshima, remembering the horror of the atomic blast, are strongly pacifist. Anti-war feelings are looked on with suspicion by the occupying Americans and the Japanese government. It is from the war profiteering that the book draws its title.

In the first book Gen's father was constantly in trouble for speaking out against Japanese involvement in World War II. Here we see a similar current of suppression of those who speak out against war and militarism as Japan serves as a home base for American soldiers fighting the Korean War. This is an eloquent plea for cooperative action over militarism in a quest for world peace.

I was born not many years after these events took place. I remember our civil defense drills at school, and the reports of people building backyard fallout shelters. I remember learning in history class that we had dropped two bombs on Japan, one at Hiroshima and one at Nagasaki, and being told that this was necessary to end the war. I remember going to class one morning during the Cuban Missile Crisis and wondering whether the world would still be there in the afternoon. In high school I remember reading John Hershey's Hiroshima and viewing the movie Fail Safe. In college I was introduced to the movie Hiroshima Mon Amour. In other words, like every one else in my generation, I grew up with The Bomb. It was one of those constants in our lives, that was always hovering somewhere in the background. But never ... never ... have I confronted such a vivid portrayal of the horror we actually inflicted upon the residents of these two Japanese cities as I have found in the first two volumes of this series. I am now just starting volume three. I am not big on the concept of "required reading," but if I were to make an exception, these volumes would probably be it. For all ages and education levels. If the images in these books are not haunting, I don't know how you would define the word.

I have not read a graphic novel before. I bought the first 2 Barefoot Gen volumes for my father as a birthday gift because he was interested in Japan during WWII and had relatives in Hiroshima during the war. I read the books quickly before I gave them to my father to see if they were interesting. Since buying these books about a year ago, my father developed Alzheimers yet he still remembers reading these books. I bought him another volume and he has been reading this. My brother saw these books and borrowed them and his son in his late teens also became interested. The depiction of post bomb Japan from a childs point of view relates issues in a way that I've never read about before. As Gen's story tells how his life and relationships change, this is a compelling antiwar piece.
