Volume 2 - 1st printing. "The Skills to Pay the Bills!" Story and art by Fred Chao. After a couple of years as an underpaid sushi chef for his incredibly stingy and negative boss, Mr. Masago, Johnny Hiro doubts his abilities to provide his girlfriend Mayumi with the kind of life he thinks she deserves. Throw in the aftereffects of Johnny's past relationships and Mr. Masago's prior business ventures with his current rival Shinto Pete, and it's all a big case study in how each decision influences the next and can create vast differences in the way life develops. Figuring all of this out is even harder in New York City, with its giant gorillas, sumo wrestlers, Japanese gangsters, and rogue catering companies. Softcover, 192 pages, B&W. Cover price $17.99.
