Ryuko – revenge, international terrorism and the Japanese mafia

Titan Comics is delighted to be publishing Ryuko by Eldo Yoshimizu through the Hard Case Crime imprint. This long-awaited translation – the book’s first ever appearance in English – follows Ryuko, a tough and powerful female Yakuza who takes revenge when her mother is kidnapped and she is forced to kill her father.  

Yoshimizu said, “Ryuko decides she must atone for the crime of killing her father, but this is not a moral trial or a mere revenge play…the theme of the book is that there is good and evil on both sides of the same coin.”  

Ryuko is part of Titan’s Hard Case Crime comics imprint, whose recent publications include Mickey Spillane’s Mike Hammer and Quarry’s War written by Road to Perdition author Max Allan Collins, Triggerman by visionary director Walter Hill (The Warriors), Peepland, by crime novelists Christa Faust and Gary Phillips, a new adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Normandy Gold by crime authors Megan Abbott and Alison Gaylin, and Babylon Berlin, a graphic novel adaptation of the book that inspired the TV show currently showing on Netflix.

About the Author

Richard is the driving force behind Comics for Sinners. His love and admiration for female comic book characters is virtually unparalleled, which immediately explains his biggest 'sin': his Hot Mummy fetish. This sketchbook theme is philogynistic in nature and even the source of his WIP comic book series "The Sisterhood".
