Drawn & Quarterly has announced at its San Diego Comic-Con panel that it will release the complete works of Yoshiharu Tsuge in a seven-volume set. The first volume is scheduled to be released in Fall 2019. Ryan Holmberg is translating the works.
Tsuge was a pioneer of gekiga (“dramatic pictures”) comics, a genre named by Yoshihiro Tatsumi in 1957 to describe an alternative style of manga that stresses realism and is aimed at adults. He is best known for his 1968 manga Neji-Shiki (“Screw-Style”), a surreal story about a man wandering a desolate, post-war Japan.
