    Akira TPB (2000-2002 Dark Horse) 1-1ST

    Volume 1 - 1st printing. Story and art by Katsuhiro Otomo. Akira is a bold and breathtaking epic of potent narrative strength and astonishing illustrative skill. Akira is set in the post-apocalypse Neo-Tokyo of 2019, a vast metropolis built on the ashes of a Tokyo annihilated by an apocalyptic blast of unknown power that triggered World War III. The lives of two streetwise teenage friends, Tetsuo and Kaneda, change forever when dormant paranormal abilities begin to waken in Tetsuo, who becomes a target for a shadowy government operation, a group that will stop at nothing to prevent another catastrophe like that which leveled Tokyo. And at the core of their motivation is a raw, all-consuming fear: a fear of someone - or something - of unthinkably monstrous power known only as...Akira! Softcover, 364 pages, B&W. Cover price $24.95.

    Akira TPB (2000-2002 Dark Horse) 2-1ST

    Volume 2 - 1st printing. Story and art by Katsuhiro Otomo. In the year 2030, the dazzling Neo-Tokyo has risen from Tokyo's ashes, but the power that once leveled Tokyo and sent the world to the brink of Armageddon - a being of monstrous telekinetic power known only as Akira - lives on in absolute-zero frozen stasis far below the city. Those who stand guard will stop at nothing to keep Akira from awakening, but Tetsuo, an angry young man with immense - and rapidly growing - psychic abilities becomes obsessed with confronting Akira face-to-face. In time, Akira will surely awaken, and Tetsuo may be the only being potentially capable of controlling him, but Tetsuo is becoming increasingly unstable and violent, and a group including his former friend Kaneda sets out to destroy Tetsuo before he can release Akira - or before Tetsuo himself becomes so powerful that no force on Earth can stop him! Softcover, 304 pages, B&W. Cover price $24.95.
