AKIRA ANIME COMICS


 

It is usual in Japan to make printed book adaptations of animation films an TV series taking still frames and adding texts bubbles and sound effects. Those books are commonly knows as Anime Comics. AKIRA the epic movie by Katsuhiro Otomo has its comic adaptation too. Those five volumes featuring cover art by Katsuhiro Otomo were released in Japan in 1988 from August to December that same year and were re-released in year 2000 with a slight change of the cover design. Today I found this edition inn amazon Japan Marketplace . Four volumes at a great price and with the  same shipping costs of one. Check Amazon Japan for availability.
