A good day for great Japanese comics has gotten even better, with the arrival of RED SNOW by Susumu Katsumata. Published by Drawn & Quarterly, Red Snow is the latest in their reprints of classic Gekiga manga from the 1960s and 70s that has seen excellent collections like Yoshihiro Tatsumi’s The Push Man and Other Stories and Seiichi Hayashi’s Red Colored Elegy. I had almost forgot this was coming out, and now here it is and it’s made my whole day.
By the by, this was solicited with a different cover (pictured to the right), so when you come looking for it at the store make sure you look for the new cover, pictured above.
Available on both floors, $27.95.
