TLT – Tiger the Long Tail

Tiger the Long Tail -or TLT– is a series of 6 comic books illustrated by KIM Jung Gi and written by Seung-jin PARK. It was published by CNC révolution between 2008 and 2010.

Set in a world of intelligent [read “anthropomorphic”] animals, Tiger the Long Tail unfolds the story of the tiger Taeho who wakes up every morning from a recurring nightmare. In his dream, Taeho dangles off the edge of a cliff with one hand, while struggling to hold onto a co-worker’s hand below him. The dream ends when he loses his grip and they both fall into a bottomless pit. In reality, Taeho lives the life of a slob in a tiny place in the slums; chronically failing every job interview one after the other. But one day, he receives a strange letter that reads “If you want to conquer the world… get on the bus. You have been selected. The bus leaves on Saturday, September 27th at 11PM.” He goes on a blind date set up by his neighbor Raccoon where he meets Rachel. And for some mysterious reason, she knows about this “bus”. After investigating the letter, Taeho learns that the “bus” will take him to a training facility operated by the powerful corporation Daesan Pharmaceuticals. Will Taeho make the cut and become a new employee of Daesan? And what does the corporation mean by “conquer the world?”

(Summary from Appszoom, at: because I, unfortunately can’t read Korean)

There are two different styles throughout this 6-volume series. The first 4 volumes are not so comic-like: they usually have 3 or 4 small illustrations per pages that work as comic panels, sometimes with sub-text. Volumes 5 and 6 are more classical, with full comic pages. These last two volumes also have a few bonus pages in black & white.

Each book is about 200 pages, for a size of 20×15 cm.

These books are, sadly, not available for sale on our website… but we’re working on making it possible!

Oh, and I almost forgot… the book is only in Korean!
