Dementia 21 Vol. 2 by Shintaro Kago & Rachel Thorn

Fantagraphics Books

Regular price $ 29.99

Devilishly funny, absurdist stories about a sprightly home aide tasked with caring for a series of eccentric patients.

Plucky young Yukie Sakai is a home health aide eager to assist her elderly clients. In the first volume of Dementia 21, this seemingly simple job led her on a series of surreal adventures that put her wits to the test! In volume two, she faces ever more oddball patients and outré encounters.

Yukie boldly decides to join the resistance — against a squadron of maniacal diapers hell-bent on taking over the world! A shorthanded hospital hires zombies to care for its patients, but … what exactly do they eat? When an old man creates a machine that causes out-of-body experiences, what could possibly go wrong? And why are children getting rocket launchers in their stockings? Three words: Santa has dementia!

From the twisted mind of Kago comes a flood of outlandish, eerie, darkly comedic tales that strain the bounds of the imagination — and bring Yukie’s strange saga to a close.
