Manga Description

Set in 1920s Japan, The Strange Tale of Panorama Island follows the twisted path of failed novelist Hitomi, who bears an uncanny resemblance to the son of a rich industrialist. Learning of the rich man’s sudden passing, Hitomi undertakes a desperate plan to fake his own death and impersonate the industrialist. He successfully takes over all aspects of the dead man’s life, including his company, his fortune, and eventually his wife.

Hitomi redirects the family’s wealth to his own perverse aims, and builds for himself an island playground of hedonistic excess—replete with waterfalls, grand palaces, and gardens, and decadent feasts, orgies, and dark secrets.

Stunning artwork by master manga artist Suehiro Maruo deftly illustrates this Japanese pulp classic in lush detail. Maruo adapted this manga from a novella by Edogawa Rampo, the Godfather of Japanese detective fiction.
