The penultimate volume of "20th Century Boys" has the campiest title in the series, but one that fits the morbid absurdity of the totalitarian state lead by the Friend cult perfectly. At this point of the saga the enigmatic Friend has finally reached a dead end. He has decided to wipe out humanity once and for all it seems, as his megalomanic ambitions have reached their fulfillment. Our protagonists engage in a race against time to stop the apocalypse.

A un tomo de acabar 20th century boys, menudo final de tomo. Impresionante.

Getting really close to the end now, making me wonder how Urasawa will wrap up this lengthy and intricate storyline in a way that doesn't feel like cheating. Hoping he'll pull it through, but not getting my hopes up too much. This volume was action-packed and full of jumps between the 1960s and the present of the story, making some new connections, but mostly befuddling the underlying story... Not the best volume in the series. Oh well, it will, hopefully all be revealed in the next volume.
sebuah angan - angan tentang masa depan yang keren abis. mungkin anak2 sekarang ga ada yang bisa mikir sejauh itu seperti kenji dkk..
