Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Slum wolf is a new selection of his stories from the late sixties and seventies, never before available in English: a portrait of Japan as a world of bleary bars and rundown flophouses, vicious street fights and strange late-night visions. In assured, elegantly gritty art, Tsuge depicts a legendary, aging brawler, a slowly unraveling businessman, a group of damaged veterans improvising a shantytown, and an array of punks, pimps, and drunks, all struggling for freedom, meaning, or just survival. Translated, edited, and with extensive afterward by comics historian Ryan Holmberg, this collection brings together some of Tsuge's most powerful work-raucous, lyrical, and unforgettable.      From book
