"Hotel Harbor View" is not for everyone. It's definitely more adult manga (i.e. Japanese comics) with both nudity and violence, but it's time the American audience start understanding comics aren't just for kids.
If you're looking for noir-ish fiction that evokes those hopeless stories of the 1940's, this is a great piece of work to get.
to paraphrase Jean-Pierre Melville as best as i can, crime fiction has a great backdrop for emotion. everything can be exaggerated, and everything can be what it wants. crime drama can be used to tell stories about friendship, love, betrayal, deceit; any human emotion can be examined while under this backdrop because the world of crime fiction has no rules.
this book says something very special about love and loneliness that i feel few comics (anywhere in the world) are able to say. and while it isn't as full-throttle-action oriented as a lot of other manga to choose from, this book is no slouch when it comes to portraying dramatic action sequences. Taniguchi san is a consummate draftsman, and this book has, in my opinion, some of the finest sequences and single panels he's ever done.
while this is a fairly quick read, Hotel Harbor View has a way of staying with you for a while. so let the pacing of this book do the work for you and enjoy; work like this is hard to find.
Any fan of 100 Bullets, Transmetropolitan, Alias or Hellblazer will get a kick out of this.
