One of our most anticipated releases is out in stores today: a bestselling manga from Japan:

Stargazing Dog
Takashi Murakami
A moving inspiring manga that is a major best-seller in Japan, selling over 500,000 copies and being made into a movie.
Daddy is down and out. Life has conspired against him, everything coming undone. Fed up, he sets out with his car to just get away from it all to nowhere in particular. All people around him have abandoned him in indifference but as we discover along with him, the one companion he can count on utterly and completely is his dog who follows him blindly, faithfully and completely, to the end.

6×9, 128pp, B&W trade paperback, $11.99
ISBN 978-1-56163-612-9

Manga Worth Reading’s Johanna Draper Carlson recommends it saying:

“This is a very timely story for the here and now. The father wants things to stay the same, but the world and others move on around him, and staying in place ends up taking him backwards. By using the dog as a narrator, the modern-day conflicts of civilization become simplified. Does one have anything to eat? Something to do? Someone to spend time with? All else is irrelevant. There’s a lot of sadness to this story, but also a sense of hope, that as long as dogs love people, we have something to live up to.”
