    Sneeze: Naoki Urasawa Story Collection (くしゃみ 浦沢直樹短編集) is a collection of short stories from acclaimed Seinen cartoonist Naoki Urasawa (浦沢 直樹) best known for gritty thrillers such as Monster and 20th Century Boys.

    Urasawa’s characters confront fantastical elements ranging from psychic powers 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.
