In pairs.Manga Review: Batman: Child Of Dreams by Kia Asamiya and MaxAllan CollinsThere have been a few attempts to meld the worlds of disparate worlds of manga andAmerican comics. One of the more successful attempts is Kia Asamiyas manga Batman:
2Child Of Dreams. First published in Japan in 2000 and making its way to the U.S. threeyears later, Child Of Dreams is not your typical take on the caped crusader. With itsslightly surreal storyline and gorgeous artwork, Child Of Dreams proves that maybe theworlds of manga and American comics arent so different.The manga begins as a TV news crew from Japan comes to Gotham City to do a story onBatman. The crew is led by reporter Yuko Yagi, an ambitious young woman who is a fan ofthe dark knight.The highlight of Child Of Dreams is Asamiyas artwork. Like most manga, the art iscompletely in black-and-white, with no coloring whatsoever. Despite this, even the mostardent American comic fan will find something to love about this artwork. The Gotham Cityscenery in the manga is stunning. Asamiya visited New York for reference before drawinghis version of Gotham - and it shows. Gotham is appropriately dark and foreboding.One manga element not lost in Child Of Dreams is the dynamic panel layout. It is put togood use here, especially in the action sequences. Some may criticize the way Asamiyadesigns characters (their noses are "huge"), but his style is instantly recognizable andsometimes results in greatness. His version of The Joker is particularly good here.Asamiyas Joker manages to make that familiar grin look like the facade of a maniacinstead of just a twisted smile.There are two main issues with Child Of Dreams that keep it from becoming aquintessential Batman work. For one thing, it contains a lot of dialogue. This Englishversion was adapted by Max Allen Collins of Road To Perdition fame. While the dialogueitself feels pretty natural, there is just way too much of it. You can see that Asamiya wantsto underline the themes he presents in the manga, but at times, you wish he would havethe characters express things a little more concisely. Also, the story itself, while intriguing,feels a little superficial.Batman: Child Of Dreams is that rare beast that successfully merges manga withAmerican comics. It stays true to a comic book icon while at the same time retaining theunique qualities of manga. Its a great for a comic book fan looking to try out manga or fora manga fan who wants something very different from whats out right now. It also showsthat there is actually some common ground between these American and Japanesegraphic artforms.http://sterfish.blogspot.com/
