Originally published in June 2013, and long unavailable, this manga classic is at last BACK IN PRINT! We here at Copacetic are excited that this has finally been reprinted. The Strange Tale of Panorama Island is an adaptation of a novella by Edogawa Rampo – widely considered the godfather of Japanese detective fiction – that runs to 272 pages. It was originally serialized in Japanese in Comic Beam from 2007 to 2008. This edition presents a translation by Ryan Sands and Kyoko Nitta in a book beautifully designed by Evan Hayden - who also provided the English lettering. High quality printing and binding round out this excellent package. Set in 1920s Japan, The Strange Tale of Panorama Island involves a wealthy industrialist, death, impersonation, hedonism and, above all, secrets and mysteries – Suehiro Maruo's forte. Page after page of finely rendered comics that build to a surreal crescendo.
Back in print! – This printing is identical to the first.
