Description

Akira Toriyama a un gros problème d'équilibre : il ne peut pas s'empêcher de raconter des histoires ! On aurait pu penser que des séries comme Docteur Slump ou encore Dragon Ball auraient suffi à évacuer ce trop-plein d'imagination, eh bien non ! Entre deux tomes ou entre deux planches, Akira Toriyama est de nouveau assailli d'idées. Seul remède à cette pulsion créatrice : dessiner ! Aussi, parallèlement à ses séries les plus célèbres, le maître n'a pas pu s'empêcher de raconter de petites histoires aujourd'hui réunies dans ce recueil.Un aviateur tombé dans une île bricole des machines volantes infernales, aidé dans sa lutte contre la gravitation par un Tarzan de pacotille. Un policier ressemblant étrangemen t à Sangoku tombe amoureux du pilote d'une théière volante. Un dragon vient en aide à une jeune fille attaquée par des poissons mécaniques, etc. L'univers merveilleux d'Akira Toriyama reste sans équivalent dans la bande dessinée actuelle ! Ces petites histoires sont des contes merveilleux et recèlent quelques clins d'oeil aux séries célèbres du maître, que ne manqueront pas de relever ses nombreux fans.

"Simple but cute retro fun." by V. Krätke (Netherlands) on Jul 14, 2005

This book contains seven different short stories by Akira Toriyama. There is some continuity between a few of the stories, but most of them are purely standalone deals. Now, I never cared much for the look of Toriyama's character designs from the mid-nineties and onward. You know the sort of thing, that slightly angular, fat-faced Dragon Ball Z look which so often gets traced in bad fanart. However, his earlier art and stories had a sort of naive charm, which gets to work its magic throughout this book. The earliest story in this collection dates back from 1979. Apparently, this is all pre-Dr. Slump material, and most of it is very similiar to Dr.Slump's style of goofiness. It's all about cute, slightly chubby-looking characters engaging in silly adventures, usually involving lots of funky cartoon mechs and monsters. It's simple stuff, but it's fun in an undemanding way. I liked the myriad eighties pop culture references and the zany mecha creations that pepper the book. Some of the jokes even gave me a good, strong fit of hysterics. The stories all showcase a blend of very silly, cartoony humour, which is good for some solid chuckles. For its low asking price, this book is a nice way to sample a fresher Toriyama from before his comics grew stale and his character designs got clubbed with an ugly stick.
