On 6th December, 1992 a new type of bomb exploded over the metropolitan area of Japan with horrific global consequences. Almost 40 years later in 2030 the Japanese population is beginning to rebuild its social society, little knowing that a much greater threat to the human race is on the horizon...

Book 2 in the Akira series sees Tetsuo (an angry young individual who possesses a rapidly growing psychic ability) becoming increasingly unstable. And for reasons unknown, he is starting to become increasingly obsessed with the urge to meet Akira face to face. But before he can set Akira free he must outwit a group that are determined to stop him.

OK! With me so far? If not you shouldn't be reading this, but instead you should be off down the local comic shop to ensure you have a copy of Akira - book 1. You won't have a clue what is going on if you dive straight in here.

The artwork is up to the standard you'd expect and plot roars along like an express train.

Put simply, this is bloody good! And well worth the £23 asking price.
