A story of childhood longing and dreams as only Eisner Award winner Taiyo Matsumoto (Tekkonkinkreet) could tell it.

What is Sunny? Sunny is a car. Sunny is a car you take on a drive with your mind. It takes you to the place of your dreams.

Sunny is the story of beating the odds, in the ways that count. It's the brand-new masterwork from Eisner Award-winner Taiyo Matsumoto, one of Japan's most innovative and acclaimed manga artists.

Translated by Tekkonkinkreet film director Michael Arias!

The second installment of this poignant series focused on the young lives of a group of foster children delves into the deep sadness and bright joys of their fears and dreams. Publishers Weekly writes, "Matsumoto deftly weaves a sense of longing and sadness into even the most chaotic scenes, and readers are drawn into the lives of children struggling to be themselves in a world that doesn't want them."

Translated by Tekkonkinkreet film director Michael Arias.

Even stronger than the first in this series, we delve deeper into the lives of this motley collection of kids and adults. Sweet, moving, mundane stories. Love it! (p.s., It really IS a masterpiece -- that's not just publishing hyperbole...)
