Visit two exotic locales in this new, globetrotting graphic novel from Vertigo
First, in a tale set in Tokyo, a lone American armed on a quest for high-tech gadgets is swept into a different side of the city by a Japanese high-school girl. Along the way, traditional Japanese values of honor and harmony collide with a young girl's wild ride to the top of the pop charts, with the Yakuza in hot pursuit.
Then, a vacationing couple heads to Bangkok hoping to heal their disintegrating relationship - but instead become embroiled in an international sex scandal that involves kickboxing tournaments, stray elephants and a misguided quest to save two young girls from a life of crime.
