Yotsubato remains the best comic currently being published anywhere in the world. It’s humbling how good it is.
I write a webcomic where there are starships and explosions and oaths of vengeance and cyborg cowboys, and it will never be as exciting as how this comic executes a simple premise like “Yotsuba’s going camping!" or "Yotsuba’s grandmother is coming to visit!”
Do you know how thrilling it was when this small child went to the electronics store? It needed to be a two-parter, for chrissakes. And it was brilliant.
More than that, it has the power to let me be astonished by the little things in my own life. God, it’s so cool that we can sharpen pencils to a pinpoint in seconds, isn’t it? So cool.
