Average Rating
Pub. Date:
After a hostile takeover aided by a deceptively perky college intern, the Gaijin Times has adopted a comic-book format to attract more readers. It falls upon Rei to write something glowing about the history of comic-book art. During a long weekend of research and relaxation at her boyfriend Takeo's beachside house, Rei stumbles on an exquisitely drawn modern comic book that reveals the disturbing social milieu of pre-World War II Japan.Rei's exhaustive search for the comic book's twentysomething creators leads to three college students. When one of them turns up dead in a scene straight out of the comic, the art story turns into a murder investigation. Rei finds herself floating through strip clubs, animation shops, and coffeehouses to get the true story - and to save her own skin.
