“Big in Japan”. Despite the cliché, not every westerner who arrives in Japan is greeted with immediate and massive success, (like Scatman John somehow did). For every overnight star who hits the big time in Tokyo, there are countless ordinary slobs floundering in the suburbs, teaching English. This webcomic is about one such guy. Dave Barker is a bumbling ex-pat who loves Japan, and he reluctantly and inexpertly teaches English in order to stay. Follow him as he tries to get by but fails at every turn, inadvertently offends Japanese sensibilities, and just generally makes a bit of a dick out of himself.
