A loving manga homage to film noir and Japanese gangster cinema, from famed Japanese artist Eldo Yoshimizu and Hard Case Crime!

The bloody and beautiful saga of a Yakuza princess! Ryuko is a hard-hitting, motorcycle-riding member of the Japanese mafia – but after a criminal operation in the Middle-East turns explosive, she must return home to face Chinese gangsters, unknown terrorists, and her own personal demons...

Part one of a two-part criminal saga, packed with international intrigue, complex morality, and blistering action!



Reviews

A whirlwind of pure action. It feels like a Paul Pope comic played at double-speed. Overlapping vignettes run the reader’s eye through splendid cinematography.

Comics Authority

The story moves fast, with constant action scenes that show off Yoshimizu’s cinematic style.
Each page is dynamic, teeming with details that reinforce the idea of movement. 9/10!
