What They Say
To keep Dr. Woong-Dam alive, Madtown's staff must transplant someone else's head on to Dr. Woong-Dam's body to prevent the further spread of the dangerous Cuba Gooding Jr. disease. The notorious patient-killer Dr. Don Juan is sent out to perform a few operations, but Dr. Don Juan manages to save all the patients instead.

Finally, in desperation, the Master Healer decides that a hamster would suffice and proceeds to attach the hamster's head on to Dr. Woong-Dam's body! Head Nurse O, annoyed by all the noise the children are making, throws the kids into the recycle bin!

Dr. Don Juan, enamored by the Cemetery Hospital's new doctor, checks himself in and is treated for incredible lewdness. But with Dr. Don Juan as a patient, no one is safe and manages to throw the Cemetery Hospital up in arms. The Madtown Hospital's Sex Education Class takes a wild ride when the doctors start discussing love motels and performing free vasectomies!

And finally, the staff operates on a Yeti, only to find that they've killed the beautiful woman underneath all the hair!

The Review
Working in a hospital means tireless hours of dedication. Even with the crazy world of health insurance the people in this profession are often self-sacrificing people that endure tremendous hardships to provide a valuable service to the public.

Working for Madtown Hospital is very much like that. The staff there has dedicated themselves to the public and to science. They work closely with the community to get to deeply understand the problems they face. And for the benefit of humanity, they research many medical mysteries to help future generations.

Working at Madtown Hospital also means enduring a certain level of insanity. The life and death pressures these people have to face daily, has pushed them to the brink of reality. So while they may be curing many people of diseases and they treat syndromes, they are also poisoning the conscious of the neighborhood they treat. Madtown Hospital takes me back to a different age of translated manga. It reminds me of manga that I used to see in English as close as five years ago. That was a time when the industry was not as large. Manga was not taking up as much space in bookstores and publishers were releasing more variety. Like in the old days of AmeComics there were more opportunities for pure comedies. And a slap-stick title with mature elements has not been seen in English since Pulp. JTK's stories are essentially quick witty streams of conscious that combine elements etchi randomness from the best of old-skool Takahashi and the moral/ethical questions of BlackJack. On the surface JTK's art might not give the impression that there is much substance to this series. Nevertheless, JTK always allows for there to always be a little bit of real science in each of these crazy misadventures in scrubs. There is much more to making fun of nazis or doctors performing check-ups naked! Madtown Hospital continues to be a refreshing highly-entertaining collection of off the wall comedy that makes me wonder if other publishers need to get their heads examined for not releasing more manga like this.
