Saturn Apartments, Vol. 2

Illustrated by Hisae Iwaoka
LIST PRICE $16.99

A touching, character-rich vision of an intriguing new world.

Reads R to L (Japanese Style), for T audiences. Mitsu has just started working as a window washer, a dangerous job that five years earlier led to the loss of his father. As Mitsu struggles with being the new guy—making mistakes, struggling to keep up, petty workplace resentments—he also discovers the simple pleasures of befriending his coworkers, enjoying time off and getting to know his absent father through the eyes of his colleagues.
