Khalid Birdsong’s Livin’ In Japan Ain’t Easy!: The first Fried Chicken and Sushi Collection,collects the two hundred comic strips that started the adventures of the main character, based on him, named Karl. When cartoonist, Khalid Birdsong, stepped off of the airplane in Osaka, Japan, he knew life would never be the same again. Being an African-American working as an assistant English language teacher at a junior high school in a small town was like an alien trying to fit in on a new planet. He was a true ‘fish out of water.’

Birdsong’s webcomic ran for four years online and new comics updated twice a week. He never thought anyone would read it but at its height, fifteen thousand readers a month enjoyed logging onto Fried Chicken and Sushi to see what his characters were going through in Japan.

Here’s a preview from the first ten pages of Birdsong’s Fried Chicken and Sushi.

If those first ten pages of Fried Chicken and Sushi didn’t get a chuckle out of you, then I hate to break it to you…your sense of humor is broken. I have four years worth of Fried Chicken and Sushi to go through and I hope you join me.
