Akira in GSA Library

The complete 6 volumes of the iconic Akira is now available in GSA Library.
From master storyteller Katsuhiro Otomo, Akira was the epic work that introduced the West to the stylised and sweeping artform of manga. This post-apocalyptic saga, set in the remains of Neo-Tokyo, charts the coming of the creature known only as Akira, a power both feared and prized for its potential to shake the recovering world. Caught in a power play between factions of a brutal military organisation, Kaneda - young, restless, committed to defying authority - and Ryu, the leader of an underground movement, are pulled into an escalating nightmare, built around a group of psychically powered children.
