My award winning graphic novel Ichiro published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt:
Ichiro is a boy adrift in this world.
Raised by his Japanese mother in New York, his American father having been taken from him by war before he ever knew him, Ichiro finds it difficult to figure out where he fits in.
A trip to Japan leaves Ichiro with his Grandfather, a stranger to him in a country he does not know.
And then one night Ichi gets dragged down a hole by a monster.
When he wakes up, he isn't in Japan anymore. In fact, he isn't in the mortal world. Ichi has entered the domain of the gods.

Lost Boy of the Forest 'comic concept'
The boy has no name. He lives alone in a forest, dense with trees of colossal size. Whatever lays beyond this infinite wilderness, the boy has long since forgotten. Each day, the boy does battle with monsters. He brawls with beasts that fly, that crawl on millions of legs, some larger than skyscrapers. The boy has never lost. Each day he fights, the boy feels that he has purpose and he is happy. One day, he meets a girl, the only other human in all the forest. What this fragile, young girl is doing in a primal world of mindless violence, the boy does not know but it will change him forever.
