Demian's Thoughts:

This comic is printed on a single gigantic piece of paper (actually a couple of sheets taped together), which is why no cover scan can be displayed with this review. Its narrative flows across the page from panel to panel, with certain panels leading in multiple directions and making choices possible. Choice-making is a little less random than in the previous comic since it's possible to peek ahead, but things are otherwise pretty similar. This is obviously not as impressive a feat of engineering, but it's a slightly more substantial story featuring a generous dose of Shiga's ironic humor.
