Today we are pleased to share with you an exclusive preview of the latest book-length release from Glacier Bay Books.
Children of Mu-Town is being published by Glacier Bay Books, and is currently available for preorder. The book will be published in early April.
From the publisher: Stylistically intermingling themes of gentrification and rebirth within the setting of a classic yakuza crime drama, Children of Mu-Town follows the course charted by youths of an aging residential housing complex who are struggling for their lives: burdened by financial issues, peer pressure, and uncertain futures, ensnared in the clutches of organized crime, they are searching for a way to survive. When a municipal renovation project seems to offer a future of stability for their dilapidated town, the mysterious and far-reaching consequences that their actions set into motion may leave Juichi and his friends with no option but annihilation…..
A stunning modern “tenement masterpiece” work of manga, Children of Mu-Town is a story of small town gang intimidation, escalating immigration tensions, political intrigue, and the yearning desperation of youth.
As a reminder, manga is generally presented in a “flipped” orientation, meaning they read from right to left. Enjoy!
