it was amazing

One of the masterpieces of the graphic novel genre. Akira deftly illustrates (no pun intended) how in some instances, the combination of images and words in sequential art results in something that is greater than it could be either as single panel artwork or as a standard novel. Akira is many things: terrifying, funny, exciting, haunting, and beautiful. Katuhiro Otomo has produced a work of science fiction that is truly one of the greatest works of the late 20th century.
