Book Description

3 April 2012
Jinchalo is Korean for Really? and that question (formulated variously as What is and what isn t? What is real? and What is imagined? ) is at the heart of this book. A companion to Matthew Forsythe s vastly successful Ojingogo, Jinchalo stars the same little girl as its heroine. When the mischievous shape-shifter Jinchalo hatches from a mysterious egg, he starts our heroine adventuring anew. Magical troubles drag the pair out of the safety of her home, through the small village where she resides, up, up, and away. In the course of their flight, they visit a robot garden, follow a vine into the clouds, and leave the village far behind. These comics are firmly rooted in Korean folktales and stylistic conventions, with a playful, joyous drawn line. Jinchalo welcomes readers back into Forsythe s Miyazaki-tinged dreamscape where spotted octopi fly and bears give piggyback rides, where hummingbirds are larger than people and a sad furry monster wearing a bowler hat lurks around every corner. Forsythe uses page space innovatively in this wordless panel-less book, and his storytelling is compelling for all ages, both simple and intricately detailed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good 7 Aug 2012
By Sam Quixote TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
A hungry little girl eats everything in her house driving her dad crazy so he sends her to the village to stock up on supplies. What starts as a simple errand turns into a delightfully bonkers adventure as the little girl encounters mischievous shape-shifters, giant birds, robot gardens and a vine that reaches into the clouds.

Matthew Forsythe draws wordless beautiful line drawings in the style of Korean comics without the panels to create a lovely, creative story that reminded me a lot of Hayao Miyazaki's Studio Ghibli movies and Jim Woodring's "Unifactor" world. The strange creatures and sense of wonder throughout reinforce this impression and draws the reader in as an initially-straightforward story goes off in a variety of imaginative directions that are all compelling.

"Jinchalo" (Korean for "Really?") is a charming and wonderful comic that will appeal to readers of all ages.
