Manga Pulse 320: Meteor Men

There’s probably a point where some poor bastard mangaka was sitting at their desk and trying desperately to think up a story for a deadline. “Gee, if only something would fall from the sky and knock my ass out so I have an excuse my editor will accept.” At that point, a coconut was conveniently dropped by a passing pair of pigeons some nut had tied together with string and bean them.

After the coma wore off they penned the story Suashi no Meteorite, which Tim reviews. In it, the main character comes home to find their house demolished by a wild meteor. Not only has his house been destroyed but his neighbors apparently have all taken bucket loads of tranquilizers because no one bothered to call the authorities in the interim. It turns out that the meteor contained a god which he summoned by wishing on a passing star. Hilarity then ensues.

Weltall then delves into a manwha titled Familyman. It’s a very dull slice of life comic where the titular family man works in a factory, sends money back to his wife and kids and suffers massive facial trauma due to lack of sleep. Scarred for life and unable to find work, he finds refuge in dressing up as an in-universe superhero and engaging in shenanigans.
