Frontier #15: Tatsuro Kiuchi
Tatsuro Kiuchi has an unparalleled eye for capturing the subtle and sublime details of moments in one’s daily life, whether a quiet domestic tenderness between a couple, or the feeling of traveling through a wide open landscape.
For our first issue of Frontier 2018, Tatsuro Kiuchi has created a series of new work inspired by his frequent motorcycle trips around the countryside outside of Tokyo. These new pieces are paired with lush, colorful paintings of travel and transit.
32 pages, Color and B+W, with author interview.

Frontier is a quarterly art and comics monograph series produced by Youth in Decline. Inspired in part by South Korea's SSE Project and in part by DC Comics "Solo" series, each issue will highlight exciting and challenging new work by a single artist. The printing and look of each issue will change to match the style of work.
Frontier is focused on highlighting the work of up-and-coming talent in the North American indie comics scene, introducing the work of international artists we adore, and presenting uncommon dispatches from our favorite creators.
