Now available for the first time in an English-language edition, "Akira Club" is an essential companion to "Akira", a dazzling collection of Otomo's mind-blowing visions, including over 100 title-page illustrations created for the original serialization but not included with the published collections of "Akira". The book also features rarely seen alternate art, preliminary drawings, production sketches and a variety of "Akira" posters, advertisements and products, all accompanied by fascinating commentary by the artist himself. No "Akira" enthusiast, manga fan, or devotee of fantasy and science-fiction illustration should be without "Akira Club".
