Complex, powerful, and emotionally wrenching, not simple is a novel told in visual form by one of the most acclaimed creators at work today.

Reads R to L (Japanese Style). Ian, a young man with a fractured family history, travels from Australia to England to America in the hope of realizing his dreams and reuniting with his beloved sister. His story unfolds backwards through the framing narrative of Jim, a reporter driven to capture Ian’s experiences in a novel: not simple. A story within a story, a book within a book, a tale about the search for family, for an emotional home.

The art might be simple, but the story was perfectly thought up. This indie manga is the greatest thing I've read in years.

I looked at this book ever week for a year before I got it and the moment I did I didn't put it down. The format of the book will keep you in you seat justas much as the story of this young boys life. Tho told as if thru some one elses eyes you will connect well. All in all the art is amazing the story couldn't be any better and the " endind" is by far one of the best i have read. Please buy it and if you like holding paper books like me buy a real copy like did.
