Chronin

From New York Times bestselling author Alison Wilgus, Chronin is a science fiction graphic novel duology of time travel adventure.

In 2042, New York City college student Mirai Yoshida’s research project takes her on a journey into Japan’s past. In 1864, she finds herself marooned after her time machine is lost, wandering the countryside disguised as a samurai, and trying to get back to her future.

Chronin is a tense, entertaining time travel caper, charmingly drawn and filled with endearing, complicated characters that you can’t help rooting for.”—Faith Erin Hicks, Eisner-Award winning author of The Adventures of Superhero Girl
