Deconstructing Comics #706: ‘Ping Pong’

by Erik Amaya

Ping Pong

Prolific manga creator Taiyo Matsumoto‘s Ping Pong is, nominally, a sports manga, but it doesn’t stick to the tropes. It presents table tennis matches that take place in a small town, not at a major tournament in Tokyo; often it doesn’t even show the end of a match! In some ways it functions as a parody of the genre. Kumar and Dana discuss this fun and unpredictable manga.
