A contagious Monster Flu is spreading around town like wildfire  Can the town's troublemaker a half vampire half werekoala and his friends get the medicine in time to save everyonePaifu a half vampire half wereko. In keeping with my theme of adding some lighter fare into my summer reading schedule I picked up a copy of Cowa one of the immortal Akira Toriyama s shorter one shot manga volumes Originally serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1997 and 1998 right after Toriyama completed work on Dragon Ball it was released into the U S market as a single volume edition in 2008 Akira Toriyama is one of the acknowledged giants of Japanese manga and Cowa is a fine addition to his overall body of workToriyama refused any help in drawing Cowa preferring to work in a three weeks on one week off pattern until the strip was finished In large part this was because of the freedom afforded him by his editor Kazuhiko Torishima one of Toriyama s most respected comrades in the industry The roots of Cowa go back to a project called BUBUL of Demon Village a single shot manga that Toriyama drew for a competition The basic plot follows child monster characters Paifu and Jose a vampirewere koala and ghost respectively They live in a town called Batwing Ridge where monsters and humans live in peaceful coexistence They are joined in their adventures by Paifu s playground rival Arpon who has an outsized opinion of his abilities and constantly finds himself on the losing end of battles with Paifu The early chapters find the kids getting into pretty standard shenanigans which are interrupted when they meet and sort of befriend one of the mysterious residents of Batwing Ridge the former sumo wrestler and grumpy gus Mako Maruyama Maruyama once killed an opponent in the ring and this event caused him to retire into obscurity The introduction of his character provides a nice adult counterpoint to the adventures of the children Formerly known as The Volcano in the ring he brings a wounded honor and a bit of real depth to the proceedings Things are fine in Batwing Ridge until a few of the monsters become ill with what looks like a severe cold As and monsters become sick and the town school is forced to close it becomes clear that this is no ordinary illness The old townie and monster Doctor identifies the sickness as the dreaded Monster Flu a horrible and often fatal disease that kills monsters in a month s time The only cure for this flu is can be produced by a Witch who lives at the top of Horned Owl Mountain a crag that lies 750 miles away and is guarded by a horrible monster who dwells in the forest surrounding the mountain Paifu decides to take matters into his own hand and recruits Mr Maruyama into accompanying he and Jose into a journey to Horned Owl Mountain to procure the medicine needed to affect the cure Paifu lies to Maruyama and tells him that the town has agreed to pay him 10000 for his help and he grudgingly agrees to take the children on the trip Arpon manages to weasel his way into the group and they take off on the grand adventureNo spoilers here Suffice it to say that there is plenty of action and laughs as the foursome wind their way to Horned Owl Mountain and the eventual clash with the Monster of the Woods and the Witch herself Toriyama s art is fun to look at and his characters are well developed and interesting I enjoyed the fact that his kids really ACTED like kids full of playfulness and mischief Paifu s lie eventually comes home to roost but you can easily figure out that this good natured tale will be an all s well that ends well type of affair Along the way there are gentle messages of tolerance and acceptance and redemption None of the characters are truly bad with the exception of the road gang and the mobsters that the group encounter along the way But those guys are really just punching bags so that Toriyama can showcase the strength of his central adult figure the imposing Volcano All in all Cowa is a uick and fun little read recommended if you like a few lighthearted laughs to go with your ultra violent manga action One last observation Cowa definitely has a Halloween feel to it and the Monster in the Woods looks like a cross between Oogie Boogie from The Nightmare Before Christmas and Patrick from Spongebob Suarepants That fact alone made me giggle uncontrollably and it s worth reading just for that Hit the used bookstore or the library and give Cowa a shot

    Originally published in 1997 Cowa is an incredibly charming all ages one shot from the mangaka behind Dragon Ball and Dr Slump and perhaps one of the most famous Japanese creators in North America Akira Toriyama Not an easy story to really pick apart suffice to say that this story of a bunch of monster children and famed murderer saving th
