I have to confess - I am woefully undereducated when it comes to Japanese comics. This classic book from the great Manga tradition is gladly one of the few exceptions to my ignorance. A bizarre story of super-science gone terribly wrong, master artist Katsuhiro Otomo employs his meticulous design sense to put us in Neo-Tokyo, a post-apocalyptic landscape where teenage motorcycle gangs fight for turf. But when they get unwittingly mixed up with a secret government project which threatens all life on Earth, things get weird. Wildly popular, spawning an anime adaptation which broke box office records in Japan, Otomo's storytelling is just as compelling as his fantastic illustrations.
