Candy and Cigarettes by Tomonori Inoue, who you may also know as the creator of the sci-fi seinen Coppelion, is coming to print for the first time in North America thanks to Seven Seas. Seven Seas have been making a lot of exciting announcements lately, including the release of a Tokyo Revengers omnibus. Both are added to the 2022 manga release schedule with the first volume of Candy and Cigarettes expecting to arrive at manga bookstores and sites sometime in August 2022.
If you are curious as to what the series is about, Candy and Cigarettes is a neo-noir revenge thriller that follows retired cop Hiraga Raizou, who gets a lucrative gig working for a shadowy government organization known as the SS Agency. Little does he know though, he’s in for a rude awakening…
On his first day of the job, he stumbles across a grisly murder and a lone little girl named Suzukaze Miharu, an 11-year-old master assassin that’s far from innocent. She becomes his new partner and their arrangement is that she kills the targets and he hides and cleans up any evidence. The pay is awesome, but how much blood is Raizou willing to get on his hands?
Candy and Cigarettes is releasing on print and digital platforms in North America in August 2022 for $13.99 USA and $17.99 CAN. As of now, Candy and Cigarettes has yet to go up for preorder but it should be going up soon on the following sites!
