In the mountains somewhere, a tiger catches its prey—a lone dragon, the kind that is hardly ever seen. Eating the dragon’s meat extracts the ultimate flavor, drinking its blood heals all one’s injuries, devouring its heart grants immortality…and yet, upon seeing the dragon’s undeveloped stature, the tiger refuses to eat it. Dragon and tiger, predator and prey—is what ties them together simply natural hunting instincts, or something more…?
The Tiger Won’t Eat the Dragon Yet, Vol. 1 is available March 2024!
