‘Prince Tamlin Tomato is a unionized subway driver for the MTA. She drives the Irifune Machi line, the local, from Jamaica Queens, to the LES to Coney Island….’ So begins Sakura Makus mini-epic DARK TOMATO, the debut publication from DOMINO BOOKS.
Sakura’s characters speak in their own way and stand upon the page with an air of authority. This comic displays a relentless commitment to an aesthetic that no one else can lay claim to.
