    GEGIKA: A DRAWN+QUARTERLY MANGA SAMPLER—FCBD 2008 EDITION

    The D+Q 2008 Free Comic Book Day issue brings together excerpts from new releases by two early masters of Japanese comics: Yoshihiro Tatsumi’s Good-Bye and Seiichi Hayashi’s Red Colored Elegy (both shipping from D+Q in May). Both drawn in the early ’70s, in the aftermath of a politically turbulent and culturally vibrant decade that promised, but failed, to deliver new possibilities, these comics are still as remarkable as ever and will be brought to North American readers for the first time this May. Tatsumi’s short stories expand the prolific artist’s vocabulary for characters contextualized by themes of depravity and disorientation in twentieth-century Japan, while Hayashi’s landmark full-length poetic masterpiece beautifully captures the quiet melancholy lives of a young couple struggling to make ends meet. This FCBD version will be all-ages.
