Waiting on Wednesday–Ichiro by Ryan Inzana

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

I think Ichiro by Ryan Inzana looks awesome!

Ichiro:

Ichiro is a boy adrift in this world.
Raised by his Japanese mother in New York, his American father having been taken from him by war before he ever knew him, Ichiro finds it difficult to figure out where he fits in.
A trip to Japan leaves Ichiro with his Grandfather, a stranger to him in a country he does not know.
And then one night Ichi gets dragged down a hole by a monster.
When he wakes up, he isn’t in Japan anymore. In fact, he isn’t in the mortal world. Ichi has entered the domain of the gods.

With words and pictures, Ryan Inzana seamlessly interweaves myth and reality, life and death, gods and mortals, creating a wholly original fantasy adventure about one boy’s search for peace, acceptance, and a place to call home.

In stores March 2012

    Awh shucks. Glad you find it as interesting sounding as I do! You might like my pick this week too – not really a graphic novel, but it’s illustrated!

    @Diana – I have not read Brave Story yet. I have a copy somewhere in the TBR, but I haven’t gotten to it yet.
