In the Pool in Japanzine

In Japanzine, Zack Davisson reviews Hideo Okuda's comic masterpiece In the Pool. Here's an excerpt from the great review:

After the first few pages the reader is pitched head-first into a bizarre, perverse and addicting world, at the center of which is Dr. Irabu, a fat, pasty middle-aged man who gets sexual pleasure from watching injections. He's a fantastically weird character who seems in need of more than a little psychological help himself. This is clearly a case of the inmates running the asylum.
