Every morning, the woman receives a single rose in her mailbox. Every afternoon, she dreams about the boy who leaves them there. And 50 years later, a family tells her story. Offering the same quirky combination of dreamy romance and slapstick comedy that defines Jo Chen’s shoujo manga work, Chen’s short story “99 Roses” is included in volume one of her new romance series, The Other Side of the Mirror. Today on the Comics Page, we’re proud to present the complete story “99 Roses.”
The Other Side of the Mirror, volume one, is out now from Tokyopop.
