Retsuko is an mild mannered accountant working in a mind-numbing corporate job. But when karaokeing, she turns into Aggretsuko: Metal to the Max.
When her entire office comes down with the “C-virus”, it’s Retsuko to the rescue. How you say? A vaccine? Social distancing? Bleach injections? No, of course not! It’s heavy metal karaoke over the office intercom!
We all wish getting over our current c-virus could be this easy. But honestly, no one has tried Retsuko’s solution. It may actually work.
There are two more full stories and a two-page short in addition to the one I describe above. One of the short stories is about Insta-fame. The other is about a Canadian coming to Retsuko’s office “to help optimize workflow synergy”. I loved the culture clash within the second.
This comic is a fun read. The characters look identical to the ones on the Netflix show. The plot is humorous. For fans of the show, like me, Aggretsuko: Metal to the Max is easily worth 5 stars!
Thanks to Oni Press and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
