Created in the late 1950s, Black Blizzard is Yoshihiro Tatsumi’s remarkable first full-length graphic novel and one of the first published examples of Gekiga.
Susumu Yamaji, a Young pianist, is arrested for murder and ends up handcuffed to a career criminal on the train that will take them to prison. When an avalanche derails the train, the criminal takes the opportunity to escape, dragging a reluctant Susumu with him. They flee into the mountains, taking shelter from the storm. Black Blizzard uncovers an unlikely love story and an even unlikelier friendship.
