Tropical Citron opens with a great page, charting the descent of a few bombs into a jungle below and transitioning to the bubbly insides of a glass of water in front of a TV showing a mushroom cloud explosion.

There are many great transitions like this in the story. The composition is superb. There is that trademark Matsumoto black humour flowing throughout as we go from one panel to another, the comedic flourishes juxtaposing perfectly.

The story is surreal to the point where the suited dude with the horse's head from another Matsumoto manga makes a cameo appearance here and you don’t blink. Soma, read more

Vice influenced hallucinatory journey which draws inspiration from Alice in Wonderland. Frustration is to be expected with first few chapters as little elucidation is offered and it remains borderline nonsensical. However, the pay off is worthy.

Matsumoto's art is as sketchy and vivacious at the same time. Perfectly suits his aberrant narrative style. Have to add that he has a tendency to implausibly undress his female characters which could not be everyone's cup of tea, albeit it really never feels to be there for the sake of untasteful satisfaction.

Black humor and his uncanny sense for slapstick comedy synchronize well with this labyrinthian plot thus read more
