May 2011: GARDEN

February 2nd, 2011 by Dan Nadel

I’m thrilled to finally announce that Yuichi Yokoyama’s 320-page graphic novel, Garden, will be released in May from PictureBox.

A group of friends is attempting to enter a garden just beyond a wall. When they succeed, the garden they finally enter is no Eden, but rather a massive landscape of machines, geometric forms and all manner of nonorganic objects. In Japanese comic-book artist Yuichi Yokoyama’s newest and longest work, his characters become enmeshed in a fantastic wonderland of distorted mirrors, photographic equipment, massive libraries and complex pathways. To his signature vivid visual style, Yokoyama has added more dialogue than in past works, fleshing out the characters and allowing them equal billing with his spectacular architectural creations, thus yielding a reflection on the myriad ways human interact with the complex mechanical world we have created.

Softcover
$24.95
320 pages/black & white

Watch for more Yokoyama announcements soon…
