Overview

Benjamin A. Wilgus's Chronin Volume 1: The Knife at Your Back: is an action-packed, time travel adventure—first in a graphic novel duology.

Her name is Mirai Yoshida.

She was not born in Japan.

She is not supposed to be in 1864.

But, through a time-travel mishap, Mirai is stuck with no way out. Help may be found when she befriends Hatsu, a humble tea mistress harboring a dangerous secret. Yet time is running short for the entire nation, because Mirai knows that the shogunate is about to fall. Learning the way of the sword might be her only path towards survival.

“Lush historical setting, deft storytelling, and an ear for sharp dialogue.” — Ethan Young, Eisner and Harvey Award-nominated author of Nanjing: The Burning City

“A fascinating, intricate story.” — Tony Cliff, author of Delilah Dirk series
