Japan History Zine


Collection of short comics that I made from 2020-2022, exploring Japan's history of colonization and displacement. The zine contains stories on Okinawa dugongs, an abandoned island with a ghost city, a Japanese nihilist and political prisoner, and the Ainu people's konbu harvesting.

-a square zine, 5.5 by 5.5 inches. 40 pages.
