Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The explosive finale to one of graphic fiction's greatest achievements is here! The mad psychic colossus Tetsuo, the world's military, and the remaining psychics of The Project face off — with the child psychic god, Akira, the wild card — in what may not only decide the fate of mankind, but may determine the next step in human evolution! This long-awaited volume — a staggering 440 pages — features the impossible-to-find final chapters of Akira, never before collected in the U.S., presented as they were intended to be seen in their original, stunning black and white! Featuring a revised translation and top-quality art reproduction, this is the final edition of one of comics' definitive works, a six-volume epic of over two thousand pages. Katsuhiro Otomo's entire masterpiece is finally available — only from Dark Horse!

Review:

"...the Dark Horse editions are an invaluable gift to newer fans who appreciate the speed and clarity of the movie's images, but still haven't had a chance to plumb the depths of humanity and complexity hidden in the original work." Tasha Robinson, The Onion

Synopsis:

"Akira is set in the post-apocalypse Neo-Tokyo of 2019, a vast metropolis built on the ahses of a Tokyo annihilated by an apocalyptic blast of unknown power that triggered World War III. The lives of two streetwise teenage friends, Tetsuo and Kaneda, change forever when dormant paranormal abilities begin to waken in Tetsuo, who becomes a target for a shadowy government operation. And at the core of their motivation is a raw, all-consuming fear: a fear of someone--or something--of unthinkably monstrous power known only as...Akira!
