Kenji Tsuruta is a busy man. So busy that he hasn't released anything in English for twenty years. Dark Horse didn't want to wait any longer and is proud to be publishing Wandering Island. Wandering Island is a retro flying adventure in the spirit of Hayao Miyazaki. With eight pages in color, this special edition features an extended wraparound cover with French flaps.
Mikura Amelia is a free-spirited young woman who lives alone with her cat and operates an air delivery service, flying her vintage seaplane to Japan’s small island communities located hundreds of miles out in the Pacific. When her beloved grandfather passes away, she discovers he left her an undelivered parcel, addressed to an island that doesn’t exist . . . or does it? To answer the question, Mikura flies off in search of the truth behind the Wandering Island!
Wandering Island is in stores July 6, 2016. Full press release below.
