Staff Recommendation: Shortcomings

I loved this graphic novel, and the way it played out like a movie. The drawings are beautiful, and the characters are intriguing and lifelike, if not always likeable. Ben Tanaka is a 30-year-old Korean American who cannot help being dissatisfied with his job, his life, and his relationship, but, his quest to get more out of life seems to lead him back to even more dissatisfaction.
