Comments Johnny Hiro: The Skills to Pay the Bills

  • Brandon

    Struggling as an underpaid and undervalued sushi chef in New York City, John Hiro is having an existential crisis. He’s not sure that he’s the boyfriend that the lovely girlfriend Mayumi deserves nor does he have any idea where his life is headed. With all these questions floating around in his head, can he learn to relax and just accept things the way they are?I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for a review.When this arrived in the mail from Tor, I honestly had no idea wh [...]

    This is one of the books I want to remember literally EVERY TIME someone asks me for a book recommendation. Yes, it's the second book in a series, but you don't need to read the first one. I was reminded to write a review by this review --t/zB0AHGfnve-- which has a great description of the exact moment that Johnny Hiro stops being just a really fun book and starts wrapping its fist around your heart:"It was a small moment, but it stopped me. With just two panels of wholly non-dramatic storytelli [...]


  • Ariel Caldwell

    This is a great book for anyone who's wondering if they've got what it takes to make change in their lives and who like some serious quirk in their graphic novels. Johnny's adulting, doing some serious introspection, and rescuing an ex from an enormous ape, escaping angry sushi chefs, etc, and dealing with Mayor Bloomberg.

    It was a very pleasant surprise to see this on a library shelf; having finished the first edition of the first volume some years ago, I didn't think there was much hope of a continuation! In an ideal world, we'd be getting new comics from Fred Chao as often as he felt like making them. Ah well.At any rate, the humor, whimsy, style, characterization, and unique perspective have all carried over successfully. The whimsy is tempered a bit this time, admittedly, but that just makes it more compellin [...]


  • Elizabeth

    An inventive, poignant comic. We know it's possible, and though this tale may not be about a topic as heavy as some of the best known of the genre, it is universal. The hero Hiro (!) tackles relationships romantic & platonic in addition to an overgrown gorilla. He also ponders some of life's persistent questions - what am I doing with my life? should I be doing things differently? what is most important to me? A touching and clever work.


  • Eric

    Artist Fred Chao has a little bit o' poetry in him. But he's also got a bit chunk of Monkey Punch in him, as well. The result? Johnny Hiro: The Skills to Pay the Bills: The best comic of 2013.


  • Patrick

    Fun read. My second journey into Johnny Hiro's world. I'll read another!


  • Amy

    Fun graphic adult novel can't wait to read his others.
