1st printing. Written by Sean Michael Wilson. Art and cover by Michiru Morikawa. Over one hundred years ago, the writer Lafcadio Hearn gathered and translated into English a selection of traditional Japanese ghost/mystery stories. They were published as Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange Things. In this new graphic novel, acclaimed manga creator Sean Michael Wilson retells six of these stories. All of them are very well known in Japan, where ghosts and demons are often called yokai, meaning "the mysterious and weird." Today these stories find expression mostly in movies and manga, but they remain rooted in the traditional ghost stories of the Edo-era known as kaidan, which means "recited narrative of strange, mysterious, rare, or bewitching apparitions." Softcover, 6-in. x 9-in., 144 pages, B&W. Cover price $16.95.
