“A fantastic riff on a simple Japanese folktale, clearly told and lovingly rendered with cinematic aplomb. Will delight brave young readers and fantasy-loving adult readers alike.” —Library Journal, starred review

From Russ Manning Award finalist Ryan Lang comes an expansive retelling of the Japanese folktale about Issunboshi, the six-inch high samurai!

In a feudal Japan where creatures of myth and folklore are real, a demon sets out to reforge an ancient weapon to take over the world. The only person who can stop him is an inches-tall would-be samurai, who also happens to be the final and most important piece of the weapon. Issunboshi: A Graphic Novel is a lush retelling of the classic Japanese folktale reminding us that one is not born a hero—you must discover the courage to become one.
