In Walking with Tammy Tabata by Rumi Hara, a college student named Steven meets up with a classmate and explores their Brooklyn neighborhood. Tammy is planning on writing a Noh play for the school’s performing arts department, and Steven volunteers to help out.
As Tammy and Steven wander around and learn more about the area they want their Noh to be about, we get to know the character of the neighborhood, and its small details come into focus. Reading this comic might encourage you to visit your neighborhood from a different perspective.
