21st century Neo-Tokyo lies in ruins thanks to the telekinetic
fury of superhuman child Akira - one of a number of experiments
gone wrong on human subjects. Now the people of Tokyo look
towards this boy as their king and bringing him to justice
will not be a simple matter...
is almost 20 years since Akira made its debut and still the
story is as gripping today as it was then. Otomo's artwork
is timeless and his story telling faultless, showing a darker
side to humanity than most of us would like to believe exists.
volume represents almost 400 pages of fine art and is not
for those looking for a light read. It unravels the mystery
surrounding the origins of Lady Miyako.
those serious about comics this is a must. But don't dip in
here! You won't have a clue what is going on. It's much more
satisfying to read volumes 1-3 first (obviously).
those who still think comics are for kids, then get your head
stuck into this.
