9780867197327: Strange Tale of Panorama Island, The (The Strange Tale of Panorama Island)

Follows the twisted path of failed novelist Hitomi Hirosuke, who bears an uncanny resemblance to a former classmate, the son of a rich industrialist family. Learning of the rich man's sudden passing, Hitomi fakes his own death, digs up and hides the other man's body and then washes himself up starving on a beach near the home of the dead man's family. Stunning artwork by master manga artist Suehiro Maruo deftly illustrates this Japanese pulp classic in fine detail.

Review:

"Stark, stunning, classically clever and utterly adult The Strange Tale of Panorama Island is one of the best-looking, most absorbing crime thrillers I've seen this century, and no mystery loving connoisseur of comics, cinema or prose should miss it." --Comics Review
