At the Bank

Another episode in a set of "life in Japan" comics

This is a thing that happens, I just don't know if I've captured it right.

Yeah, so, I feel this doesn't quite capture the incident quite right. It happens a lot in meetings and interactions in general that there's a lot of silence. People in Japan just seem to say nothing in a lot of situations where English speakers would assume you could just sort things out and get on with it. What I've depicted here is a real thing that happened, but... well, anyway, it's a thing.

Colours in this comic were done by Eddie Jensen , who makes a comic called Grappleseed . Please take a look at his work when you get the chance.

One of the comics that I did about life in Japan, this time in Japanese, because there was a time I actually wanted to do things in Japanese.

Another comic about life in Japan. This time, an encounter at Narita airport.

There was a time I considered doing a comic about my experience in Japan. I decided it wasn't worth it, but I did about seven or so, and I'm going to put them online just so the effort isn't wasted. This first comic is probably the most dysfunctional, referencing issues that no longer matter and events no one remembers.

A very typical moment when living in Japan, at least for me.
