Ryo Hanada (June 15, 1987) is one of the rising stars of Japanese
comics today. Winner of SquareEnix's 2012 Young GanGan Manga
Award's Special Prize for her submission BLIND, she quickly caught
the attention of bigger publishers.
After a couple of years in self-publishing, in 2013 she made her professional debut with Kodansha's premiere manga magazine MORNING (publishers of mega-hits such as Chi's Sweet Home, Drops of God, Vagabond). Her first work for them was Devil's Line which is already captivating audiences with its stunning artwork and interesting mix of the supernatural and modern-day espionage.
"The best supernatural stories hold a dark mirror to our society, and [Devils' Line] introduces a new type of sexual politics into the vampire genre." -- Megan Cavitt, PANELS "I loved the pace of the manga and how detailed it was without dragging. It was intense, dramatic, and had some funny points." -- Motif by Tanya
