Welcome to Neo-Tokyo, built on the ashes of a Tokyo annihilated by a blast of unknown origin that triggered World War III. The lives of two streetwise teenage friends, Tetsuo and Kaneda, change forever when paranormal abilities begin to waken in Tetsuo, making him a target for a shadowy agency that will stop at nothing to prevent another catastrophe like the one that leveled Tokyo. At the core of the agency’s motivation is a raw, all-consuming fear of an unthinkable, monstrous power known only as Akira.Katsuhiro Otomo’s stunning science fiction masterpiece is considered by many to be the finest work of graphic fiction ever produced, and Otomo’s brilliant animated film version is regarded worldwide as a classic.This edition includes a new foreword from the author and a postscript from Dark Horse publisher Mike Richardson!

I recently re-watched the Akira movie and came to the conclusion that the movie seems to leave a lot of questions unanswered and some really ambiguous. I'm sure some of this is completely intentional on Otomo's part, but with almost 2000 pages of graphic novel, I'm sure much of the story had to be l...
