Product Details


“As a collection of stories, Slum Wolf presents a fully realized view of the persistence of defeat and occupation on the Japanese culture. As readers follow the disaffected and maladjusted characters through their worlds, Tsuge consistently prompts the reader to consider the feelings and circumstances by invoking the reader’s empathy and fears.” —Gregory Smith, Pop Matters

“Tsuge’s art veers wildly from cartoon abstraction to painstakingly detailed drawings of shadowy figures and looming city streets, rendered in harsh, energetic linework that propels the eye from panel to panel. The stoic attitude of these excellent pieces is summed up in one  character’s reflection: ‘Without receiving a dose of pain once in a while, it was hard to remember the point of staying alive.’ This period piece holds lasting resonance.” —Publishers Weekly
