"What I set out to do with Gon was to draw something that was more interesting than anything you could say in words. Manga still has great potential that does not exist in other media. I plan to continue developing the art of expression." - Masashi Tanaka

Gon follows the daily adventures of a little dinosaur with attitude - with the same name as the title - who was able to survive the catastrophic extinction that wiped out the other Jurassic animals all those years ago. This manga is one in a million; it has absolutely no dialogue, no human characters, and is set entirely in read more

Tanaka managed to present a beautiful and illustrious masterpiece which indulges your senses, and conveys the animal kingdom in somewhat fanciful manner.

Art style is stupendously tantalizing - meticulous depiction of animals, embelished with superb backgrounds, makes you hover over it more than once in astonishment. Important to mention is that this piece is made without any dialogues or onomatopoeia. Story is literally depicted, perhaps better than some manga(s) who use the general approach of story telling, not even once will you feel the lack of previous mentioned. If Tanaka had not taken this courageous approach, it wouldn't be miraculous as it is.

Furthermore the story's, these are just basic little adventures that Gon goes through, these are read more

*Warning! This review contains minor spoilers*

There is no point on going into the story in details, since there are no continuing story (until the last volume), neither question or address how he appears in different parts of the world since it shouldn’t matter. I enjoyed how all the locations of his adventures takes place in many familiar yet unknown places. You will see them in an entirely different way!

The artwork is really amazing, so much details on every animals and landscape. Just search “Gon manga” on google or other search engine with images and you will understand what I mean. The animals looks so read more
