Raised by his Japanese mother, Ichiro idolizes his dead American father, and struggles to fit in. When his mother decides to visit Japan, Ichiro is left with his grandfather, in a country he doesn't know. Grandfather becomes Ichi's guide, sharing Japan with him. But one night, a monster drags Ichi away-into the domain of the gods! Now, he must face his fears and learn about the nature of man, of gods, and of war. He also learns there are no easy answers-for gods or men. Called thought-provoking, wholly original, and captivating by reviewers, Ichiro 'asks hard questions for readers but challenges them to arrive at their own conclusion' (Booklist) and offers 'a powerful commentary on war and peace' (Bulletin). Ryan Inzana is an illustrator and comic artist whose work has appeared in numerous magazines, ad campaigns, books, and various other media all over the world. Ichiro is his second graphic novel. He lives in New Jersey, with his wife. www.ryaninzana.com.
