Devilishly funny, absurdist stories about a sprightly home aide tasked with caring for a series of eccentric patients.

Plucky young Yukie Sakai is a home health aide eager to assist her elderly clients. In the first volume of Dementia 21, this seemingly simple job led her on a series of surreal adventures that put her wits to the test! In volume two, she faces ever more oddball patients and outré encounters.

Yukie boldly decides to join the resistance — against a squadron of maniacal diapers hell-bent on taking over the world! A shorthanded hospital hires zombies to care for its patients, but … what exactly do they eat? When an old man creates a machine that causes out-of-body experiences, what could possibly go wrong? And why are children getting rocket launchers in their stockings? Three words: Santa has dementia!

From the twisted mind of Kago comes a flood of outlandish, eerie, darkly comedic tales that strain the bounds of the imagination — and bring Yukie’s strange saga to a close.

Press Highlights:

"Showing influences from Salvador Dali to Katsuhiro Otomo, the combination of Kago’s precise, expressive, and kinetic line work with his wacky storytelling is at turns engrossing and repulsive. Mature fans of unconventional manga will appreciate the surreal spiral of body horror, tragicomedy, and dark humor." — Publishers Weekly

"Part social commentary and satire, part menacing story colored by greed and selfishness, part narrative on thankless work, Dementia 21 is a transgressive form of graphic medicine." — Intima

"Charming, hilarious, and thought-provoking. Dementia 21 proves that Kago is a cutting satirist with a deft touch for black comedy." — Broken Frontier
