Shiro Ijima, the bestselling author, has been working with the amateur manga artist Noiz on the Fissure manga. Photos of Shiro kissing Noiz at an art gallery are all over the tabloids. When Noiz is attacked for being gay, Shiro has flashbacks of the abuse by his mentor and experiences writer's block descending into a past addiction. Keita, Shiro's agent, has to save Shiro's reputation with the Fissure book 4 release date fast approaching. Hoping to save his career, Shiro arranges a charity gallery show for Noiz but when a mystery man appears at the gallery, Shiro is confronted by past demons and descends once more into the abuse which destroyed his career as the manga artist for Dawn five years ago. With his career at stake, Shiro must rely on his older sister Julia to clean up the mess. Or is there another way? Can Shiro save his writing career without drawing Noiz into the chaos? Find out more in graphic noiz: book 3.
