Noiz is 19, an illustrator who just graduated from art school and created his first manga entitled Disaster Code. He is excited to be showing his work at a comic convention in New York City. He eagerly sets up his table at the con but when no one stops by on the first day he gets discouraged. The famous writer Shiro Ijima is at the con signing books in his bestselling scifi Fissure series. Shiro wanders the aisles in Artist Alley on a break and runs across Noiz' table. Shiro seems intrigued with Noiz' art and walks away only to have his agent come over and inquire. A cat and mouse game starts as Keita, Shiro's agent tempts Noiz trying to see if he will bite on a project to turn Shiro's bestselling, scifi thriller Fissure volume 1 into a manga. Keita wants to use Noiz to have the work cost less weighing the risk of using an amateur manga artist instead of a well established one. Noiz realizes that his work looks like an old out of print manga called Dawn that Shiro drew eight years ago and initially published in Japan but Shiro is not a mangaka any longer due to a tragedy that occurred when he was just starting out. Keita has Shiro play games with Noiz getting him anxious to start the collaboration. Shiro is a womanizer who goes on lavish dates with his female fans then dumps them cruelly on the second date. He is snobbish and aloof but his fans love him for it. However, Shiro seems to be taking an interest in Noiz for reasons other than just his art. Follow the antics of a naïve manga artist and the arrogant bestselling writer as they plan to start the Fissure manga project in graphic noiz #1, the first volume of a YA yaoi series.
