Invisible Parade collects 13 stories both recent and from over a decade ago. This is the definitive collection of Kyoto-based painter and comic artist MISSISSIPPI’s comics work.
A shooting star falls out of a long orbit towards the Earth; one normal Sunday beckons in an invitation to a mysterious art installation; a flying saucer suddenly appears in the sky over Kyoto; a bike repair job that’s more than meets the eye; an unusual guest joins a woman on her evening “alone”; one slow, lazy summer is interrupted by a long distance phone call, from Brian Wilson in the California of the 60s, to the Kyoto of the 90s. MISSISSIPPI’s dreamy sci-fi episodes are modern fairytales infused with a poignant sense of magical realism, bringing to life the everyday moments and subtle character of the human experience.
A ミシシッピ [MISSISSIPPI] short stories collection.
