What is Gon?
you live in Japan, you already know the answer to that question.
For millions of Japanese comic book readers, a Gon sighting
is much-anticipated event, and the serialization of his adventures
in Japan WEEKLY MORNING magazine accounts for many of the best-selling
issues of that magazine.
1991, Gon's creator Masashi Tanaka has crafted dozens of
stories detailing the adventures of the foot-tall dinosaur as
he roams the planet, befriending and/or antagonizing a seemingly
endless variety of modern-day animals. Where Gon come from
and how he got here is left unsaid, but the lack of a logical
explanation for his existence seems little obstacle to readers'
enjoyment of the tiny terror's sometimes poignant, always hilarious
exploits. Gon's Adventures take place everywhere; in the
past, he has convorted with penguin in Antarctica and zebras on
the African Veldt; grizzly bears in the Pacific Northwest and
koalas on the Australian outback. You name the place he been there,
and wreaked havoc to boot.
what Gon's Japanese audience knows; Here in the States,
however, Gon's presence is slightly less all-pervasive,
but no less anticipated by his many American fans. For them, as
for the Japanese, each new volume offers the possibility of new
locales for Gon to venture into, new ways to get into trouble,
and new vistas to be beautifully rendered in Tanaka's unique art
a world of pocket monsters, Gon reign supreme. No mere
figment of the imagination, no mere one-of-150-available cute
critters, Gon is unique - the first, finest, and smartest
of his breed. Tiny, orange, funny, finest, and ferocious, Gon
is a creature out of time, a creature that never was, but unlike
the current crop of mini-critters overwhelming video games and
toy store shelves, might have been. His adventures, till now at
least take place in the real world. He interacts with other species
of animals that truely exist, and if their reactions to Gon's
presence seem slightly more human than animal - well, chalk that
up to artistic license. Sure, it's fiction - but Gon's
adventure always display a scrupulously researched reality that
serves as the launch pad for their flights of fantasy. And despite
the whimsy evident in practically every one of the Gon
stories, there's a real depth to the character, and a never -
exhausting flow of imaginative situations for Masashi Tanaka's
favorite creation to get into (and out of!)."
