Synopsis

From Xiao Pan: Ten different Chinese authors decided to talk about their own vision of Beijing life, and the changes made to the city due to the 2008 Olympics. Various subjects are drawn here (destruction of old houses, athlete selection, pollution...) and the graphic styles vary from standard black ink to coloured works looking like contemporary art.

The synopsis says it all: A glimpse into Beijing's changing society in the wake of the 2008 Olympics, presented in a unique art style.

Being what it is, I think the manga is primarily worth reading to get an impression of the atmosphere/the cultural zeitgeist and the mindset of the people at this point in time, which is captured quite well in this book. The individual plots and characters as such, however, remain mostly unspectacular in comparison.

Since the book contains stories by different authors, the art varies from story to story. Still, all stories share a similarly playful, slightly sketchy art style which, for some reason, read more
