In order to find a star she glimpsed ten years ago, second-year Mayumi Dojima enlists the Pretty Boy’s aid, and gets much more than she bargained for! When they run up against a shadowy organization called the Twenties, stargazing is suddenly the least of their worries. Mayumi’s entire future is in jeopardy, and the Pretty Boy Detective Club must race to solve the Mystery of the Dark Star before time runs out!

"Ex-soldier Juzo Inui has one question--who turned him into a cyborg and erased his memories? After the war, cyborg soldiers known as the Extended were discharged. Juzo Inui is one of them, a man whose body was transformed, his head replaced with a giant gun! With no memory of his previous life--or who replaced his head and why--Inui now scratches out a living in the dark streets of the city as a Resolver, taking on cases involving the Extended... Keeping Tetsuro, the fugitive son of the Berühren Corporation, safe is going to take resources Juzo doesn't have. An old contact at the Extended Management Squad can help, but in exchange Juzo has to bring in the very first noncompliant Extended, Hayden Gondry, the suspect in a number of murders whose victims had their auxiliary brains forcibly removed. Juzo takes the case, but tracking down Gondry will entangle him in a larger conspiracy..."--Provided by publisher.

A collection of short stories from the grandfather of Japanese alternative comics. Legendary cartoonist Yoshihiro Tatsumi is the grandfather of alternative manga for the adult reader. Predating the advent of the literary graphic novel movement in the United States by thirty years, Tatsumi created a library of literary comics that draws parallels with modern prose fiction and today's alternative comics. Designed and edited by one of today's most popular cartoonists, Adrian Tomine, The Push Man and Other Stories is the debut volume in a groundbreaking new series that collects Tatsumi's short stories about Japanese urban life. Tatsumi's stories are simultaneously haunting, disturbing, and darkly humorous, commenting on the interplay between an overwhelming, bustling, crowded modern society and the troubled emotional and sexual life of the individual.
