A young boy types into a search engine: THE EDGE OF THE WORLD. It is there that he decides to go. With his bag on his back and map in his hand, he jumps into a taxi headed for the bus station. In the night, the taxi collides head-on with a mysterious humanoid creature. Its face was covered with eyes. The young boy had never seen anything like this. As the driver gets off eagerly to harvest the creature, he explains that it is an endangered species highly prized for its eyes as rare camera lenses, its blood is delicious like milk tea, and its flesh is as tender as Matsusaka beef…
In Huwei, central Taiwan, a military family settlement sees successive waves of residents arrive, hoping to find a place to call home. What none suspect is that their dreams are intimately tied to the ghosts of WWII and martial law that still haunt the area. Constructed on the site of a former Japanese air force base, the Huwei military family settlement housed Nationalist soldiers and their dependents who retreated to Taiwan in 1949. The four tales in this graphic novel move through various periods of time, weaving together the lives of the residents of Huwei with the voices of ghosts from the past, thereby addressing the complex history of the Americans, Japanese, mainland Chinese, and local Taiwanese who have all left their mark there.

He studied in Japan to become a doctor and was drafted to fight in South-East Asia for Japan in World War II. When his ship was sunk by enemy fire, he was sent to Saigon where he experienced personal pain and the fragility of life in the brutal realities of war. Miraculously, he survived and made his way back home but things were far from peaceful. Two years after the war, he was selected as one of the leaders to defend his town against the nationalist government’s violent suppression of 228 Incident. Between his personal calling and his family and friends, which should he choose to sacrifice? The Man Returning from Afar portrays how a generation of Taiwanese choose their path of life in a time of turmoil.
