Urasawa's characters confront fantastical elements ranging from psychic powers, to alien visitors to planet Earth, to attacks by giant monsters. On the flip side, the author philosophizes about his real-world experiences with the wild and wacky international music scene. Plus, a classic, funny animal tale, in Urasawa's inimitable style!
For older teen audiences.

    Each of the stories comes with a commentary from Urasawa himself, and it is also nice to see two of these stories being coloured entirely. John Werry also appears to have no problems with his translation. For this and many other reasons, Sneeze is one of the best short story manga collections I have come across. Read Full Review

    As always with these collections, some stories are better than others, but Sneeze overall is a fun departure from Naoki Urasawa's more dramatic works. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Scott Cederlund Oct 22, 2020

    In Sneeze, we find the Naoki Urasawa that we know from his previously translated work but his short stories reveal a playfulness that there is just not room for in his larger work. Even in the stories that feel like they could be expanded into something larger, his work is almost more spontaneous as he does not have to lay the ground for events that will happen hundreds of pages later or pay off something that happened 10 chapters ago. These stories exist more in the moment of the story. For the reader, it's the experience of living more in the moment of these stories than what's possible in some grand epic. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Olive St. Sauver Oct 8, 2020

    While every story in Sneeze might not be for everyone, I would definitely argue there is something for everyone in this anthology from a beloved mangaka. It is a must-have for any Naoki Urasawa fan, and definitely worth checking out by anyone who loves comics. Read Full Review

    Sneeze is another brilliant manga from Naoki Urasawa, showcasing his skills in short-form storytelling. Readers will be impressed by the variety of stories showcased in the collection, and will be left wanting more by the end of their read. Bless you, Urasawa! Read Full Review
