In 2011, the worst earthquake in Japan’s history breached the costal Fukushima Daiichi power plant, causing three of its four nuclear reactors to melt down.

Forced evacuations followed as the event released enough radioactive material into the air, ground and water to force officials to set up an “Exclusion Zone”, effectively sealing off the land for what may well be the rest of human history. But that’s only if you don’t have the right connections and the desire to experience catastrophe, failure and misery as it really is! Enter DISASTER INC., an underground tourism outfit intent on helping people of means, secrets and agendas explore the dark corners and off-map attractions typical tour groups won’t go to (and various laws don’t allow). Only Fukushima, known for its famed warrior class and their protection of the land and people dating back to ancient times, is full of deadly surprises and old ghosts.

    I have a ton of questions, but the fact that there are radioactive, zombie spirit samurai makes those questions irrelevant. The story isn't even really about Disaster Inc., but about the employee who handles everything for the sketchy owner. A travel agency to extreme locations for bored rich people, their latest outing is to the nuclear disaster area in Fukushima, Japan. Things do not start off well and they go downhill fast. It's a quick, fast-paced read with great symbolism told through fanta I have a ton of questions, but the fact that there are radioactive, zombie spirit samurai makes those questions irrelevant.

    Much like the original Gojira, some ghostly samurai have been awoken into life by radioactivity – in this instance not nuclear war but the disaster at Fukushima. So when some sad-sap, unlikeable people enter into the exclusion zone around the stricken plant, they're fair game. Unfortunately, this is about as successful as the local sushi market – the daytime events really have none of the atmosphere needed in a book like this; the visual effects are diluted inasmuch it's never clear whether they Much like the original Gojira, some ghostly samurai have been awoken into life by radioactivity – in this instance not nuclear war but the disaster at Fukushima. So when some sad-sap, unlikeable people enter into the exclusion zone around the stricken plant, they're fair game. Unfortunately, this is about as successful as the local sushi market – the daytime events really have none of the atmosphere needed in a book like this; the visual effects are diluted inasmuch it's never clear whether they're caused by drugs, or radiation, OR something spooky, and it's never really interesting to guess which; and as I say none of the characters can generate a millisievert of interest. Add a narrative voice that seems to swing from official documentation to personal thought to something else, each chapter over, and a completely muddled kind of plot, and this pretty much becomes a no-go area. One and a half stars.

    Stuck in debt to a conman, Abby is on her way with a "tour group" to visit the site of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster. Part of the group for Disaster Inc., which spends their time going to various sites of death and destruction, the group is completely unaware of what they're walking into.

Part of the group for Disaster Inc., which spends their time going to various sites of death and destruction, the group is completely unaware of what they're walking into. The land, still suffering from radiation poisoning as this was just a few short years ago, is being affected in very strange ways. Throughout the story, you see these Japanese citizens preparing to go to the nuclear reactor and help deal with the containment, and your assumption is that these are citizens of the past and not of the present. There's a great underlying story here about how land can hold the spirits of those that died on it, but in terms of actual characters, it's not the best. The artwork is fantastic, the horror elements are great, and the ending was unexpected. I'd love to read a whole novel/series dedicated to this idea.

    Not good. An adventure travel company that sponsors off-the-grid trips into places like abandoned oil drilling platforms in the middle of the ocean offers a behind the scenes trip to the decommissioned Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan. Unfortunately, there are ghostly samurai coming back to life as a result of the accident and running around beheading people. This story wasn't developed at all well and the artwork ranged from fairly detailed on one page to a muddy mess on the next, even though i Not good.

I just have no idea what the point of all of this was supposed to be...
