Akira Club by Katsuhiro Otomo


Akira Club by Katsuhiro Otomo

Katsuhiro Otomo's epic manga, Akira , is widely considered to be a pinnacle of the form - a work of astonishing power and visionary scope, with unsurpassed artistry. Now available for the first time in English, and featuring more than 100 full-colour, full-size title-page illustrations not included in the original manga reprints, as well as rarely seen alternate art, preliminary sketches, production drawings and a variety of posters, advertisements and products - all accompanied by commentary from Otomo himself - Akira Club is the ultimate companion to Otomo's masterpiece! Beautifully presented in a high-quality, coffee-table hardback edition, this is a book no sci-fi, manga, comics or Akira fan should miss!

About the Author

Katsuhiro Otomo is one of the most respected and influential Japanese storytellers in the history of modern comics, and - apart from Akira - his work includes Domu (also available from Titan Books) and The Legend of Mother Sarah. He has also worked extensively in anime; from his own, hugely successful adaptation of Akira to 2004's ten-years-in-the-making Steamboy.
