This self-contained short story concerns an expatriate gay couple stationed in Japan and the strain this cross-cultural adjustment place on their relationship. The comic takes place during one 24-hour period and illustrates the influence that sexuality, parity, and economics have on gay male relationships.

The reprint will be available in June, 2010. You can pre-order through Amazon o this website using the links at the top of the page: the book will be sent to you upon publication.
