Tatsumi takeover, or, man, take a look at all this gekiga!

This spring is a big gekiga season for us; I've already talked and talked about the soon-to-be-released NonNonBa, but we've got four more titles on top of that (YEOW!).

Three of these titles are softcover editions of our Yoshihiro Tatsumi hardcovers, The Push Man and other stories, Abandon the Old in Tokyo, and Good-Bye.

It had been a while since I'd read these books, and I had forgotten just how striking the design is. As always, Adrian Tomine did an impecable job designing these titles in their hardcover format, and as you can see, the paperback versions are equally incredible.

If you haven't read these titles yet: 1. what are you waiting for? 2. you can read more about them here, here, and here, respectively; and 3. clear some time to devour them in March when the softcover editions will be released.

And, lastly, our fifth gekiga of the season, Fallen Words:

Like Tatsumi's other D+Q titles, Fallen Words is a collection of short stories; this time, however, the tone and content are a departure from his previously released work, as the stories are taken from the Edo-era tradition of oral storytelling (rakugo). You can read more about Fallen Words here, and we'll have plenty more for you as we get closer to the release date.

Mark your calendars, internet! All four Tatsumi books will be available in March; NonNonBa will be released early April!
